I don't know why Miniatures are so interesting but I love them and was inspired by them to do this mixed-media painting. It begins with a sand-glue-and-paint mixture of purples, sparkles and metallic acrylics which coat the entire face of this canvas, making it a bit heaviery than you'd expect. While the background was still WET I pressed the little books in to secure them to the canvas within the background. Scattered and glued the miniature colored pencils and took the time to paint and decorate each individual book, one of which hides my signature!
"Do unto others as you would have them do unto you," the coo before the command, "Lead by example." Remmy didn't always believe in such things, couldn't until she first accepted the truth and intelligence they bestowed. Even so, it took years to turn the knowledge into practical and personal application. In 2017 Remmy started shifting her creative interest toward the Stream of Consciousness and sharing of information, thoughts, and concepts. From cabinet maker to customer service rep, toll collector to call center quality specialist and trainer, home remodeler to paint night art instructor, and a variety of odd jobs in between. Broken bones to 3rd degree burns, self-loathing to helping others, hating the world to leading with love, caring only for herself to caring for her ailing Grandparents... Remmy has a lot of life insights to share; and the care/passion to make every RA artwork worth owning.
