Acrylic on Mylar
This series came as a result of my acrylic skins which at times are mounted between plexi. The challenge was that I could not reasonably make skins in large scale and ship them in two sheets of pleix glass. In a world where folks are always on the move, I thought it would be wonderful to have large paintings in a scroll type form that could be rolled up and move with great ease. I also hope to continue to address the idea of light and the idea of multiple images on one support.Mylar is an translucent archival material that is extremely durable,light weigh and is a great support for Acrylic painting.
At times these paintings have a bolder side and a softer side, something I have tried to continue to maintain. This give the viewer the option to flip the painting according to the mood they wish to have in the environment. Many of these can be hung traditionally on the wall or in front of a window or as a room divider. This again address the idea that no matter where the piece reside , there should always be a spot for it.
As you scroll down you will see a collage of the piece below. This give you the chance to see a portion of each painting rigth next to each other.

Acrylic skins are created by applying paint to a surface other than canvas. Once the painting is finished, it is removed from the original surface . I transfer it to either paper where I might add more paint, or I sandwich the painting between sheets of plexiglass giving the viewer the option of both sides of the painting, much like stained glass.

Acrylic on Canvas
Tanglewood and the surrounding area of Weedon Island Preserve is my backyard. My husband and I often go out on our kayaks and fishing boat very early in the morning or at sunset. I find great peace and serenity in nature. The ever changing world of land and seascape continue to inspire me.
