Playing with Paint

Well it was another great weekend with Chris Cozen from
Golden Paints working artists program. Chris is a wonderful
mentor and an extremely talented artist. About four times a
year she travels from Pasadena, CA to our local art store
Stamping Details to demonstrate new techniques and new
Golden products.

I love to paint backgrounds that I can use for collage
and other art projects. These are a few of the
samples I painted and embossed from our class.

All papers were painted with Golden acrylics. Some papers
were embossed prior to painting and others were embossed
after paint. Some of the papers used: watercolor paper, canvas
paper, and acrylic paper.

The base paper here is black with applied layers
of Golden fluid acrylics, stamps, stencils and
texturing tools.

Check here for the working artists in your area.

More to come...with Golden's new digital mediums.
There was alot to take in and I'm still experimenting
with these products. Imagine printing on metal and

Stay tuned.. Thanks for your kind word and visits!

Both assemblies work well together as you organizxed them and also as individual treats. Artsy M&Ms to gobble up - all true to your palette and with no artificial fillers....

Why does the word artificial include the word art?

Impressed, stunningly so.

That is something I am going to try to be doing with my collage, but if I will succeed? I hope I am merely half as good. You did an outstanding job. Kudos to you.

Golden's new digital mediums? Can't wait!

I will check out the artist in San Antonio (the only one listed for TX). This seems like a great springboard to shake off being stuck artistically, as I am right now.

Missed you lots!

wow! Your papers are all so gorgeous! I love coming to your blog and seeing all of your luscious work!

Tami Bayer said...

Wow what a wonderful collection of pages you made! Chris is so amazing. Love the painting on black backgrounds. Your pieces are stunning.

Lucky Dip Lisa said...

Wonderful!! You manage to make even samples look great and I can just imagine using them. They look like they were fun to make too!

Mauricio said...

Really nice, colorful.

See you :o)

All are well done. But 2 of them really caught my eye. Top collage. Middle row second from left. A view I saw of tall grasses waving in the breeze, like my post for today, 8/28. And the bottom left of the top collage; reminds me of a boulevard in Paris, street on one side, tree lined sidewalk with caf'es on the other. Love them 2 paintings.

Rob said...

Aw, geez, "love them 2 paintings"...poor grammar on my part. so sorry. ;)
