c.2012 Lynne Ciacco, Upfronting Minds, acrylic & pastel on magazine paper, 10 x 8 in.
It was done very quickly and spontaneously, using dollar store acrylic paint, some old oil pastels I found in the closet (left over from my high school days!), and liquid matte medium.
By cropping the image differently, other "paintings" can be produced, creating a series.
These could provide inspiration or jumping-off points for paintings on canvas I might do in the future. They provide a different approach, at the very least, for my way of picture making.
c. 2012, Lynne Ciacco, Circle Dance Squared, Digital Art
And for making digital art, they provide fine fodder.
This is the first image seen at the start of this post, plus a repeat of it flipped 180 degrees and superimposed on the original. I toyed with Distort: Wave: Square in Photoshop's filters, and used a final blend mode of Exclusion.
I only wish I could get the same effect in the "real" world of paint on canvas.
Hmmm, maybe I could...
