"Painting The Pieces Together"
I am a self taught artist. For the last 7 years I have been painting in mosaic style with acrylic paint.
I find myself seeing everything in mosaic.
This style started back in the late 60's. Just a few men from California painted in this style up to the 70's, (probably because it is so time consuming). Just one large painting can take up to 60 + hours.
No tile, stone or glass is used. Never is it straight or even. This is so freeing because I can manipulate my colors, texture, sizes and over all look with a couple of layers of paint and sometimes I add sand or other materials to change the texture of the paint.
Always trying to recycle, so most of the frames are used.
With acrylic paint (almost) any idea can be designed to fit your style and needs. If there is something you would love to have made please send me a note. I would love to hear from you.
