Geisha Girl, Encaustic Collage

I was inspired by this vintage image and had the wonderful rice paper with the Japanese writing on it to go along with it.
I love working with the beeswax collage. It is so immediate and has that amazing depth and texture. I have been making my own medium with beeswax and  Damar resin. I will soon have to go in search of a local apiary.

Dream, Encaustic Collage

I really enjoyed doing this Encaustic Collage.  The vintage image of the little girl is sweet, she has such a dreamy look on her face.  I can totally relate as I spent many hours daydreaming as a child.
It is a 10" x 10" cradled panel.  I finished the edges with the black lace.  I am really enjoying the use of buttons and how they work with the wax -they don't have that glued on look like they do with acrylic. The word Dream is done with a Rub On which works so cool and is so much easier than doing a transfer.

Nick Bantock Tribute

                                                   Let Me Be Free to Spread My Wings.

This is the tribute I did for the Nick Bantock Contest.  It has photo transfers and collage elements including stamps , maps and wire screen.
I used TAP transfer paper for the transfers, it worked great on the watercolor paper. It is a 5" x 7" image.

Copper Labyrinth by Patt Scrivener

Copper and circles are my latest passion.  (as well as the maple walnut ice cream that  I am eating to cool down in this 36 degree heat wave)  It is even to hot to paint! My studio looks like a tornado went through after getting ready for last weekends Originals Only Show. I haven't had the energy to get in there and regroup but tomorrow I will have to as I have submissions to get ready as well as an upcoming market.

Strata -Mixed Media Painting by Patt Scrivener

This is the new collage -many layers of built up mediums, fluid acrylics and paper. I have made most of the papers myself even adding coffee grounds to one of them to emulate rock.

Ready for the Party, Mixed Media Painting by Patt Scrivener

This is one of my paintings in my show at Qualicum Art Supply Gallery.  I painted a wild background and then painted over with a blue gesso misture.  I then scraped back into it and revealed the tulips in the vase. 
I added a few details to finish it off.

Copper Fusion -Mixed Media Abstract

I started this piece by building up textures with gel medium.  I then dropped inks into it and let them run.  The last step is letting go of some areas and defining the focal area.  I added some opaques and black.  It is 16" x 16" painted on a gallery wrapped canvas.  Contact me if yu are interested in purchasing this piece.

Chair for African Grandma's -NanGo Grandma's Nanaimo Charity Fundraiser

This is the chair I painted for the Grandmothers for Grandmothers Nanaimo group.  It is a bit whimsical - entitled the Joyful Goddess.  It has words of inspiration and encouragment written on it as well.  I sincerely hope that it brings much pleasure to who ever wins it at the auction.  I am grateful to have had the opportunity to contribute to such a great cause. Go Grandma's Go -you rock!!
