Text Tiles

Eternal Opportunity...Inspiration has been bubbling for a while and has just started to boil over. And with it begins a new series...Text Tiles. Art all about what I love the most. Layers. Texture. Letters. Symbols. Grunge. These are the first two pieces in the series. More to follow. Different sizes. Different colors. Different substrates. Same theme!

Seth, I love these letters in the surface, and all the grunginess! You got it right.

Thanks for the list of ingredients. I have lots of watercolor paper - garage sale, lucky me! - and the rub on letters! Yes! This would be great cathartic fun! - Jeanne

A new series with new energy of Eternal and Opportunity. I'd also say optimism! Love it. Just looked at them in your Etsy shoppe and see that you've got all bases covered- with a mixtures of your super blues, textures, layers, numbers and even text above and below the surface. Think your bubbling over sprouted something great. Since you love symbols...

Can't wait for more! Jill

I'm a sucker for blues and gray!. These are great, like chunks of the Berlin wall.

I not only love your art but your ability to use words as intriguing additions to accompany your wonderful art pieces.
Very clever indeed!
Thanks for your comment on my blog too, much appreciated.

The empty space between the little images and words is just enough to keep my eye bouncing around. Negative space is a wonderful tool!

Beautiful and gem like .... I love the texture of the watercolor paper coming through. There's a very mathematical feeling to these somehow. Wonderful job!
