WITHOUT LIGHT, WISDOM HAS NO ROOTS
Artist: Doreen Moscillo-Howes
Light is compassion. Compassion is essential for true wisdom.
Knowledge and experiences alone can’t manifest it.
After sketching a tree of life, I have the challenge of jig-sawing a very thick piece of Versatex.Envisioning a piece composed of natural materials, I started to collect bark and stones. Expressing a desire to use metal for the leaves, artist Anne Gaffey generously shares copper sheets with me. Using a method learned on youtube, the leaves were patina. A minimal color pallet that included metallic copper paint help harmonize the piece. Final step was weatherizing with a few coats of polyurethane.
I’m a work-in-progress — still exploring and discovering my creative side. Mixed medium for my “Uncommon Apple” was a new exploration for me. Acrylic painting has been my focus. Actually, this project reignited my desire to creative with mixed medium, as well as get-out-of-the-box with my painting.
