Nude Bathing By Moonlight

Image

9×12 in. mixed media. If it’s too cold to skinney dip, then one can only bask in the warm rays of the mountain highlands by the lake during a full moon. Most likely this would just be slightly better than skinney dipping, goosebumps would be maxed out either way. Title obviously came to me as a continuation to my last BUBBLE TREE piece. Didn’t use as much tissue paper in this and I pulled out a trick I learned many years ago to get the right shading…shoe polish! Prior to that the shading wasn’t right for the feel I wanted…want to say the first time I saw this used was by a fellow student at Ottawa University. Never used it too much, kinda messy and gets on everything…the liquid polish doesn’t work as well as the paste type…rub and remove till you like it, then acrylic sealer. Funny how old studio tricks come back to ya… with this piece I believe I have enough to start a new catagory…Bubble Trees

Down 2 Duchamp’s

Mixed media 10×14 in.  To think that such a modern abstract classic was done 100 yrs. ago by Marcel Duchamp (1912- Nude Descending Staircase,No.2). My way/my style of doing a piece inspired by Duchamp. His piece/work would make my top 20 and Duchamp would make my top 20 favorite artists. (note I find it very hard to make a top 10 list or be able to rank them, so I have empowered myself to have a top 20 unranked…list to be published at a later date.)
