Artist Elma Schumacher’s mixed media shop;
Original art and reproductions available.
Lately things have been, well they’ve been busy and some big changes may or may not be coming up in my near future. It has been a somewhat stressful time so getting away from it all has been on my mind. Maybe that’s where the idea for my new series of paintings came from?
“Escape from Earth” is the title and theme of this new series.
I’ve been finding myself drawn more and more to news about discoveries in astrology and space exploration. Given the rest of the news which includes global warming, conflicts and disasters around the globe, escaping Earth seems like a good idea.
I’m just not sure that we are going about it the right way. Or maybe just not looking at doing it in the right order? Maybe fixing things here on Earth should be the first priority? These are just some of the questions I want to explore in this series.
Watercolor, gouache, inks, acrylic paint and medium and more were used on acid free rag paper to create the above mixed media paintings.
