BLISSFUL-BOHEMIAN

Monday, January 11, 2016



Finally in the new year I finished my 40"x 40", three months in the making and 182 tea bags sewn and plastered with Venetian plaster, also graphite, oil paint and coffee. Finished with cold wax. Unfortunately I had a hard time photographing it as I had to take it outside and the snow on the ground caused a glare, the color between the teabags is much more coffee colored than this light grey it appears to be in the close ups.
Oh well as always my paintings are so much better and yummier in person. This painting is titled Grid # 6, (Colin's Habit) after my friend that provided me with all the teabags! I always love to hear your thoughts also as you know if you double click on the images they get larger. XOXO

Beautiful textures! Well done Annie. It is hard to appreciate just what a vast scale you have been working to, on this one! It is almost like a window.

Melanie,

Thank you sweetie, nice to hear from you, I am a bad blogger, but will visit soon.

Annie, as usual your work never disappoints with its texture, rhythm, and pattern. This one makes me think of ancient manuscripts, hidden for years and just brought to light. Wish I could see it in person.

Sharmon, Thank you, I am sort of going for ancient and hidden and I love it when people get it. I wish you could see it in person too. xoxo

well I'm a little late getting to the party but this is awesome. So much has gone into this that it's truly amazing and mind boggling at the same time. Yes, to Sharmon's sense of the ancient manuscripts, that is definitely the feel of it.

Looks interesting. Well, it's better to say that this idea is fascinating and I do really like the way you made it!

Annie said...
