Tender original mixed media painting by Polly Jones

Tender by Polly Jones
When Kenny and I rented our first house, I made black and white curtains for our living room/studio.  These striped curtains figured into a lot of my paintings.  I'd forgotten how much I love painting stripes until doing this one.  It's connected to the whole polka dot obsession I suppose.  I finally got up the gumption to tear into my antique book on prayer for collage purposes.  The language is so flowery it seemed appropriate.

12" square original mixed media painting on gallery wrapped canvas. SOLD

I love the transparent glass and all those stripes.

The colors are so vibrant! And I love the look of the glass. At the moment I am trying to create a mixed media still life in my art class. Your work is so inspiring!

Thank you! Very much. I think I enjoyed making this one so much because it surprised me...I went a different direction than I had planned. Sometimes it's hard to let the piece become what it's supposed to be.
