• Image of "Painthings: Evolution of Communication" 9x13" original

This piece is the second in a series I'm calling "Painthings: The Evolution of Communication"

This is an approx 9x13" mixed media original, rendered in acrylic, wood, image transfer, oil pastel, and antique radio guts.

I am forever charmed by thoughts of how, at one time, these bits and bobs were the height of technology, and the way humans kept in touch with what was going on in the world!

I have a box full of these...the colors are perfection, and I am deeply drawn to both creating art with them, and thinking deeply about this evolution of communication that I have seen in my lifetime. I have a series of essays {perhaps a book} AND a series of "painthings" on my heart!
