Sailboats are so fun don't you think?!   This mixed media painting captures that feeling.  All the bright colors and designs and movement.

Working on a wood panel offers the possibility of using different techniques that aren't possible on a canvas substrate.  I began with collaging vintage book papers in various places on the panel, then layers of paint using a brush, gelli plate and even rubber stamps.  if you look closely you will still see book text visible behind the layers.  I used a glazing technique to carve out the balloon shapes from the sky and a bit of yellow around each one for the glow.  The edges of the piece are finished in white as pictured in the detail photo.  The piece is protected with a matte fixative to preserve the rich colors for years to come.
