Old items are new again

In search of….

I love to haunt my local thrift store and flea market for odd or unique items to use with my art.  A recent trip to an outdoor flea market led me to purchase an unusual shaped frame that housed a mirror. I was intrigued by the mystery of the narrow rectangular shape, I knew it deserved a moody painting to adorn it…

This was my process:

My first attempt to paint was a FAIL, so I began a second painting.

Second painting,  I used acrylic paint, with iridescent silver, and ink with gesso on chip board

Cleaned frame, added a new hanger before adding the artwork. (see full image below)

Haven

Refuge from this wild life

I reserve a place in the hearth of the soul

The place I haunt only in dreams

Dark of night

Silver shadows take flight

Feel the moment

Quiet..

whispers all around

just the sounds of wildlife
