Something new and different



As an artist we are always searching for way to reinterpret our visions and as I have always been in love with textures, I too have been searching for ways to interpret and apply the texture I discover in the form of a painting.

So while gardening, trimming a tree and cutting all the branches down to fit in the fireplace, I looked at the pile of wood on the ground, my imagination began to run wild.

After collecting enough pieces of twigs and branches to fill a ten gallon bucket, I felt I had an abundant amount that were size appropriate for use on a canvas to begin the project. Using tweezers and medium gel, each piece of wood is carefully positioned in place until the desired effect is achieved and here are the results . . . 




Holz vor den Schuppen (Enough wood in front of the shed), 8 x 8 inches





Log jam, 8 x 8 inches





Beaver’s dam, 8 x 8 inches

This is very interesting Egmont,congratulations! I particularly like 'Log jam'. I am a bit concerned about what happens when the twigs dry out and the bark starts to peel off.

Ooo I really like these, especially Log Jam. They will look wonderful hanging in a row.

These are wonderful, Egmont. I would love to see them in person, to touch and smell. okay, I'm weird, but they just look so tactile and sensual...

Wow Egmont... these are brilliant!
I've been neglecting everyone in the blogosphere of late... a big hello and hope to see more things happening with wood!

I love work with wood, it has a warmth that no other material offers. I was thinking about what I could do with twigs when we did some trimming last week and the next day when an idea came the wood had already been removed, sigh. Sure glad to see your creations, hugs!

I really like these pieces. My anal side would pick would pick the first one with it's "formal" composition, but my spirited and more contemporary side loves the Beaver's Dam.

BTW I have a twig frame and some pouch furniture which are 15 years old and the bark is still on them.
