|STAR ANGEL, "For all we saw was splendor unsurpassed" |
magazine transfer and mixed media 12" x 9"
This past weekend my good friend and mixed media artist, Win Dinn, came to town to give a workshop. Two absolutely electric days. Win's work sheets indicated that we'd be shown 21 methods and by golly she got to every one (and more) which is why all nine participants are still reeling and buzzing with excitement over what was taught and learned. Freely giving of herself to all her students, regardless of their artistic level or ability, each one comes away feeling empowered to make art. Please consider booking a workshop with Win and see her art here:

|Colour ruled. Acrylics were painted, drizzled, rolled and scrubbed over various gel mediums and other "starts"|
Each of us were given an old law book to "alter" in our spare time. What spare time? Still, we managed to slop extra paint on paper and began sticking random things on the pages.

With mixed media anything goes and there is simply no limit to the possibilities. I'm so ready to play like this. To view the entire photo essay of the weekend click here.
