Crackle Gackles

Crows 10" x 10" mixed media on canvas, sold    

Creating this plaster background was very fun, but I had no idea what to put in the foreground.  I decided on a coastal bird, but it just didn't look right against all the cracks and texture. Then I thought of these crows and they definitely worked for me.

Crossing 6" x 8", Mixed Media on Canvas Panel

I am loving this new look of impregnating plaster into burlap.  It is quite a process, and I am having fun experimenting with all the different things I can do.  I like to break the plaster to create all the little cracks and crevices.  Then, once the plaster/burlap is adhered to a canvas panel, it becomes very strong and stable. 

Doesn't it look great in  this black frame?   Unlike some of my other paintings which could go frameless, I love how this frame makes it pop.  It really makes the piece. 

You can purchase both here.
