from the Ozarks....


Mixed media  on 10.5"H  x 8.5"W  heavy watercolor paper
Framing required

An abstract landscape that I believe is a reflection of the wet and cool summer we have been having here in the Ozarks.  I am imagining the purple to be a native Missourian perennial herb that seems to be growing everywhere.  They are beautiful!!

This small abstract was begun on Arches 156lb. acid free watercolor paper, cut from a huge roll that I purchased earlier this year.  Appears there will be many more paper paintings to come! I seemed to have developed a technique on the paper that begins with watercolors on wet, wet paper.  Once dry, I will layer with more watercolors and then at some point, acrylics begin to be mixed in...  Lastly, I accented with dry pastels in the upper half creating more details and depth.

Once this little jewel is matted and framed it is going to be like looking through a window into a picturesque country side.  ....and then, when it is hanging on the wall, it will make the perfect escape!!
