Fossil



"Art is a kind of innate drive that seizes a human being and makes him its instrument. To perform this difficult office it is sometimes necessary for him to sacrifice happiness and everything that makes life worth living for the ordinary human being."

Carl Jung:

Yestereday was one of those days where you try just about everything and don't succeed at anything. I hadn't worked on mixed media for a while so I decided to try out some new pigmented sands that I found at the art store. This piece is pigmented sand, gouche, ink and oil stain on masonite.

I think this works beautifully. It sounds like you have such fun with these mixed media pictures, experimenting and playing. In realism I don't think there is any play.

Thank you, Anita! You are right. It is a very exciting medium but at the same time the results can be disappointing because they are rarely what you had pictured in your mind.
