Loose and Tight



Still working on these abstract, mixed media pieces.  I like doing the
fun, loose, wet backgrounds.  They happen in just a few minutes, and then
you have to wait for them to dry.  It is always neat to see how
they will turn out.  The white specs are made by sprinkling salt on
the wet paper.  It soaks up the pigment, and leaves the white areas.
Then I paint the bird over the background.  I just recently took this photo
in south Louisiana where these white pelicans spend the winters.

It is 11 x 14, and $100.
