I wish I could grow wishes
like I do weeds.
I wish I could pick them off one by one
wish by wish, hope by hope.
And dream them into existence,
like I do my memories.
If only life were so easy,
If only wishes grew on the backs of tiny bees.
spreading dreams and hope through the air
sprinkling a wandering wish right in front of you,
right when you may need it the most.
Art Resin, Oil paint & Alcohol Inks, 9 x 11 inches, 2020
I use molds to create these unique Resin paintings. I start with a layer of alcohol inks and resin, this is the textures you see as the background of my paintings. I then layer with clear resin and paint directly on top of the Resin. I continue to layer resin over each painted image once it’s dry. The entire painting is finished with a shiny gloss coat and two saw tooth brackets are embedded in the back for easy hanging.
This painting depicts two brightly-colored bees covered in tiny Dandelions that are blowing off gently in the wind. Next to the bees are two floating Dandelions, also blowing away. Behind the bees is a golden Honeycomb Hexagon pattern over the alcohol ink background. The entire painting is encased in clear resin and measures 9.5 by 11.25 inches, it is 1 inch thick and weighs about 4 pounds. there are two sawtooth brackets attached to the back for easy hanging.
