The Golden Mean" mixed media on wood 20"x20"x3"

This months Girls Just Wanna Paint challenge was my pick- I chose - "The Golden Mean" or 
"The Golden Ratio" as something to explore in any way that happened. 

In a nutshell- 

What is the Golden Ratio?
Closely related to the Fibonacci Sequence  the Golden Ratio describes the perfectly symmetrical relationship between two proportions.
Read more about it here. 

 In this mixed media I used so many things I have saved over the years- Ive been purging and this was a great way to use up a tiny fraction of the wealth of ephemera I have.
Its a little overwhelming to work on these- the studio gets trashed!

Paint and sip

Last night I led this group from Duxbury step by step how to paint this scene - they had picked the image. It was fun and they were quite pleased with the results!
I used to think these kind of painting classes were menial but I've come to appreciate that people are discovering the joy of painting in a fun ,relaxed, non threatening environment .

Happy New Year!

I was late posting this one on our monthly Girls Just Wanna Paint challenge blog- the theme was"chair" - here is the link to see all of them.
This is a 24"x24" oil on canvas- done mostly with a palette knife.
 I am trying to finish up what's in my studio now and start fresh for the New Year. I have some ideas but they need percolation! Hope everyone had a great holiday and are off to a wonderful new year!
