... And yet a few more....

And here are a couple more multi-media paintings that I did in my 
Gut Art class. I must like the number 3 as the top one again has 3 goddesses in it.  Can you spy them?  

 The second one as well... maybe even a fourth and the last one... well I'll let you decide. I like the movement in all of these... flow!

What is so cool is that the images make themselves out of the back ground.  Mystèle, what an incredible class.  I am already game to start the next round ;)

... And a bit more...

This is another GUT ART production, perhaps my favorite.  This is the first time I used palette knifes for painting.  Very fun!  They add a whole other dimension, not to mention texture.  This one was inspired by the artwork of Michael Banks.  His paintings are so imaginative and original. They all have a story to tell, like this one. His art has a naive quality and is full of truth, innocence, but also depth and simplicity.
A little bit of gut art...

This is an acrylic painting I did while in the wonderful workshop by Mystele Kirkeeng called GUT ART!  I heartily reommend it!  We get inspiration from the various virtual field trips she takes us on and from her own enlightened and fun techniques.  It is also about fun and excavating your personal muse/artist ;)  So this picture is of me and my sissies dancing under the full moon ;)  It was inspired by the field trip of Pilar Rios' work, a beautiful Chilean artist who paints strong female figures, but without faces.  I love it!
