Texture is what I really love. Most of my small paintings begin life as a demonstration of a technique I am teaching. Sometimes they have many past lives and layers. This is one of them. I continued to build texture and then used stencils to add the circles. This painting incorporates many of the textures you will find in our upcoming book, Surface Treatment Workshop. You may order before it is released from Amazon, or look for it in bookstores this summer.
We are two Santa Fe artists that were searching for a book just on image transfers and couldn't find one — so we wrote our own book. This experience led to our other books — Surface Treatment Workshop and Mixed Media Revolution. We have just put in a proposal for book four that we will tell you about soon. This has been a long but wonderful journey of learning and we had lots of fun and hope you do too.
