FROM THE STUDIO OF . . . CHARLEEN MARTIN

Mixed Media Collage Diptych . . .




Invited Guests ~ An Uninvited Guest

The background colors on these two pieces actually do match.  I photographed them both at the same time so I have no idea why the background colors came out different , but . . . they did.  : /  

These are both 12 x 24 on Wood panel and each comes framed in a nice, 1.5" deep Matte Black Metal Frame ready to hang.   


'Invited Guests'    shown alone.

For more information on either of these pieces please Click here:   Website .

Moving soon . . .

Since this site will soon be 'moved' into the Contemporary Painters of Washington I am blogging on both so if you visited the new site you will pretty much see the same thing . . .

I've been busy the last couple of weeks getting ready for a show that just opened in the 'Manic Moon and More' Gallery in Spokane, WA.  Because of that I haven't blogged like I should have so hopefully I will try and make up for that by posting 2 of the pieces I just did for the show. 

I tried something new and did a set of 4 horses (which I've never done before).  I enjoyed the change and can see the potential of adding more to the series.

Hope you enjoy them . . .

Rorschach Test

Rorschach Test  ~
     What do you see . . .? !   The focal point of this piece is actually the negative space left over from something I cut out for another collage.  I found the shape fascinating so I knew I would have to use it.  This background seemed perfect.  I see an 'Alice in Wonderland type dream.  Don't know what that says about me but I'm sure that's why the Rorschach tests are so intriguing!

Just 2 days until Thanksgiving.  I hope everyone has a safe and  Wonderful Holiday

This piece has a lot of golds and copper tones so it just 'shimmers'  What looks like blacks are actually very dark greens ~ they just turned out a lot darker when photographed.
