Study 41: Art Resolutions-The Lady Steps Out

Art Resolutions is a self-imposed initiative to create an art study every day for a year. Welcome to Study 41.

Like life, art often becomes more interesting with layers. They provide depth and some mystery. Maybe alchemy. How mysterious what emerges from layers and how and why it emerges. Again, like life, there are choices made along the way that force some parts of the composition into light and others into the recesses.

The lovely Lady Peony remains lovely and fragile but stands strongly imagenow against what lies behind. And I will ponder this on many levels as I move through my day.

    I have put the final thick layer of heavy gel medium on my series of The Wall collages. Hopefully, it will give the look of wax. Under that are probably 13 or so layers of paper, medium and paint. I even treated myself to a little electric sander so I could sand down some places and expose the lower layers. I love knowing that there are layers on a piece of artwork. :)B
