Because Art Should be Play and Not Work

Friday, September 11, 2015

I am a big fan of Lynne Perella. I have saved every article she has written for Somerset Studio magazine--so many in fact, that I now have a notebook full of articles. I decided to do some Perella style of my own based on her circus article.



 I love her many layers and her use of historic photos which she transforms and the many different elements she uses in her mixed media pieces.

I've been fortunate to take a couple of classes with Lynn. She's an amazing teacher. Janet, you always inspire me with your ongoing forays into art.

The color combination in these are so beautiful. The yellow-orange on the first and last ones really pulls you into the center of the pieces. All the little textural bits are great.
