Bridgette Guerzon Mills | Among Golden Leaves, encaustic mixed media, 8×8 inches
I have been working on a new collection for an upcoming show at Lark and Key Gallery for their 16th anniversary. The first two pieces for the series was a piece with a bird and then one with the rabbit. I just realized that I have yet to post the bird and that was the piece that started it all!
I wanted to create colorful works for this show. I also wanted to use vintage clip art embedded among more expressive marks. The first two I made, the bird and the rabbit, the markmaking and brushwork really was a lot looser. And with each piece, it became less so….not sure why. This was the third piece I made in the series. I have loved having it on my studio wall these first two weeks on 2024. It’s been a bright cheerful spot on the wall.
This series has been different than my usual for me and I have been enjoying it.
