The Magic of White

mixed media collage art 

Lately, I have been embracing the power and the magic of white in my art and it is so addicting. I have been adding white in the form of white drips, white text on colored backgrounds (in found magazine images), and of course, white birds as in this Peking duck.

Magic of white

the red dot means SOLD!
Was it the magic of white that drew everyone to this happy duck during my open studio last week? It was one of the first paintings that sold. Everyone who came in after wanted to collect the art as well.  (prints available on etsy and imagekind)

White is for angels

White is often associated with purity, cleanliness, and virtue. Like an angel, the duck looks out onto the room and protects all with his magical powers. The dominant colors are teal blue, lime green and white and there is a gingham brown ribbon that runs along the horizon line.

Here is the art while I was working on it on my art table. Explore all my duck art, or look through my animal art portfolio.

How the colors in the art calm you down

The lime green evokes positive feelings of nature while the aqua blue provides a calming affect. The brown ribbon grounds you making you feel safe. It is important to me that the art makes you feel both happy and calm at the same time. How does the art make you feel?
