Americana

"americana" mixed media on wood, 11x14, $155 (c) 2010, Lynne Medsker

Going back a couple months to September and featuring another mixed media piece today, this one created with cement & acrylic on wood. I began by painting a wash of colors over the bare wood and then applying the cement texture randomly.

After the cement had dried I began to add layers of acrylic, one at a time and building up the color slowly.

Obviously I got a little lost in the process because I forgot to take any more “progress” photos until the piece was finished! Oops! The colors just sort of went naturally into the red, white, blue tones with a bit of old-fashioned feel to them so the title for this piece came easily.

I’m excited!! I’ve been busy in my studio this week getting ready for some upcoming shows – be on the lookout for new art soon. And more after that – the ideas are just dancing in my head. 🙂
