OIL MOSAIC COLLAGE


OIL MOSAIC COLLAGE

Oil mosaic collage

I realize that the title could make you think there should be a comma in-between each medium listed in my title of this post but it really is a description of a new method I have invented.

Close-up of face

Method:
I painted a face onto a wooden board I happened to have in my studio. I used the Renaissance oil method. Next, I collaged mosaic tiles onto the surface, giving the piece a rustic, yet rich look.

I just love the way she looks as part of this chair

She is not for sale at this time but I’m working on one I call “The Crone” that I will be posting soon.

  12. Cheryl you work is so amazing! I can see why this one is not for sale at the moment. I couldn't part with it either. She is so beautiful and with the mosaic it is priceless :)

  13. Your women are so ooo-la-la...so mysterious and knowing...just like you I imagine.
    I think you could be my sister (not qite old enough to be my mother) You seem to be more interested in the same things (and me) than my own.
    I am sometimes a terrible blogger friend, but please know you are never far...in my thoughts anyway. ♥♥♥

  18. Hey girl, all of your art is beautiful but this piece has something a little different. She has an extra depth to her. I think she's holding secrets. Beautiful secrets that make her soul smile. You can see that in her eyes. Bravo, Lynne, bravo!

  20. I love this lovely lady with her soft and wispy beauty and charm. In fact, I like her more than the Crone, who I think looks a bit evil.
