Currently on My Easel...

24 x 36  Mixed media ( acrylic, collage, oil pastel )
Still thinking on the title
This mixed media piece began life as an acrylic painting of sticks. I was stuck. The sticks were going nowhere so after about a year of noodling on it, I finally pasted over the entire image using squares of colored mulberry paper. I quickly brushed on 3 horizontal bands of acrylic color letting some of the old image come through. I sketched on the branches using my brand new set of oil pastels (Christmas gift from my husband). This is my first try at oil pastel. They are really putzy! But I like the results.
