mixed media on canvas
They arrived! Yesterday we got the package at artstream of Claudine's original collages. Let me tell you, the internet per usual with art work does nothing for the work, except show you an idea of it. The pieces are rich with color, texture, text and depth.
Claudine is an artist who is well known around the USA and abroad. She has published books on her art and has been guests of HGTV, Diva Craft Lounge, and craft lab, DYI just to name a few. All of her accomplishments aside, her work speaks to me with a certain whimsy, a touch of sadness and of course in most of her pieces, humor. Yes in this ultra serious world of art we can still have humor. Currently we have six of her original pieces in the gallery. I will post them at our site here in her own little gallery page, later today so you can see them all! When Claudine is through teaching at ArtFest out in the state of Washington, she will be sending us some sketches as well. We are thrilled to have her work in the gallery.
The word for the day is ... experiment ... with a new idea, three art media you didn't think would work together, or with a new way of looking at the world!
