Conversations with Nature
These two paintings are the result of a workshop I took yesterday from Rebecca Wild, a local artist who often teaches for the Sitka Center near Lincoln City. We cut simple stencils from contact paper and applied multiple layers of color and text on paper to create these small works. They're each about 5 x 7 inches.
This one with the 12 circles was done by cutting masking tape into nickel sized circles and sticking them in a pattern on tip of the painted paper. Then I worked back into the paper with powdered graphite and pastel, removed the tape and wrote a poem inside the circles about summer rain on the coast.
