Reception: February 13 • 5–8pm
Mixed Media Textures and Color series was created digitally and using acrylic paints. The Explosion of Color and Texture image was created using a photograph of a tree manipulated in Adobe Fireworks software, Photoshop Elements, and Illustrator software, which she use interchangeably. Sondra applied texture and color using the blending tools and special brushes. She had the image reproduced on a high resolution poly/cotton blend canvas. The work is further embellished by painting on the canvas with acrylic paint mixed with gels and glazes, which produces a transparent or translucent gloss finish transforming the design to an explosive abstract mixed media work of art.
