Cotton Candy



I am very happy and excited that I was recently invited to exhibit my art at the Jefferson Street Gallery  in Morton, Illinois.  The exhibit will be up the months of October/November with a reception on October 3rd.  Cis Carlson, a fiber artist will also be exhibiting her beautiful felted scarves and other wearable fiber art.


I have been busy creating some new paintings for the exhibit and getting them wired and ready to hang.   “Cotton Candy” was created on a canvas using acrylic paint for the first layer.  I  then spread on molding paste with a palette knife and stamped into it with bubble wrap for added texture.  After the paste dried, I added additional color using Caran D’Ache watercolor crayons.  I scribbled on the color and then used a wet brush to paint out different areas while leaving some of the acrylic paint showing through.  Next I scribbled on a bit of India ink to bring it all to together.  As I was painting out the crayon marks, the colors reminded me of cotton candy so that is what I decided to call it.
