'elsē' ~ watercolors, gouache and oil pastels on old book page, approx. 4" x 6"
elsē is the name of a character in the book this page was taken from. in fact, on the back of the page the title of the chapter is 'elsē's story'. what i liked about this side of the page is the flower that you can just see in the area of her nose and eye...
she's been sprayed with a protective fixative...

' hymn' ~ colored pencils and graphite on dura-lar, 4" x 6"
the words on the side of this piece are from a song by a.a. bondy titled 'i can see the pines are dancing'. they read:
this is a hammer.
this is a hymn.
this is a match to a ball of lies.
this is the beauty.
these are the stars raining down from the sky.
in my mind every painting is a hymn, a hammer and a match...
a picture of the piece without white paper behind it, so you can see it this way. i like leaving the dura-lar (a synthetic surface that's great for colored pencils) translucent so you can choose what to put the piece over. and i like that everything changes when it's not against white. she'll come with a piece of 4" x 6" white paper, though...
'melusina and the rose' ~ watercolors, goauche, colored pencils and graphite on 'colourfix' paper, 2 1/2" x 3 1/2"
melusina the wild girl, with her precious rosebud...
she's painted on 'colourfix' paper, which is a rough paper used primarily for soft pastels, so that's the texture you see. it's not easy to photograph! i just can't seem to capture her in pics; she's quite soft and not harsh as she appears here...
she's been sprayed with a protective fixative.
