Serendipity Sunday

Moving on... to Serendipity Sunday's finds. I took some time this morning to find mixed media loves

Michelle Chaplan
I love this artist! She has a great way to overlay images onto vintage papers, fabric, and other such media. She was featured in this month's Somerset Studios. I just have to do this with some of my old family photos... I LOVE IT!!! She takes commissions too. What a unique art piece.

Aspen Grove

Felicity, a new mixed-media on canvas by Douglas E. Taylor. 30.5 x 24.75 inches overall in a simple one inch wide gold leaf frame $3,245: SOLD

This collaged piece is amazing in color and pattern! I have a thing for trees anyways, but the whole piece is full of natural shapes and amazing detail. I'm so inspired to use my paper scraps this way!

Martin Brouillette
This is a great example of image transfer onto a painted background. I'm not sure that this is how this artist did this work, but that's what I immediately think of. It gives it such a moody and emotional feel to the piece.

Carol Archer
Skin to Work series, 1998, fabric, latex and paper on board,
approx 40 x 40 cm.

This artist has a whole series of "skin like" textural pieces. I love the colors and the subtle imagery of a nose and the distressed stripes. It's a feast of sensory overload!

I love to browse the internet for artwork that can jump start my creative juices when I'm feeling like I'm running low on mojo. I have lots of new ideas now and can't wait to go play with images today!!! Hope you were inspired...
