The phrase “she sank into the depths” was very workable . It conjured up quite a few visual images. Giant squid was the initial thought, so I went with it. Snorkel woman was based on an image I shot while on Maui many years ago. Took about 3 hrs to complete. Nothing great but just quick and in a media I’m very uncomfortable with. Give me a stick of charcoal and I can create some good images. Hand me a paintbrush and it stumps me! Materials used were gesso, soft pastels, matte medium, transparent air-brush acrylics, liquid acrylics and collage.
For anyone in the Corvallis area, the show will be hung at the beginning of June, opening reception on June 5th. Show location is at the Corvallis Public Library in the main meeting room.
