Work in progress..."Corrosion"

This is currently drying on my easel...I'm pleased as can be about this mess that I made today...I'm playing with modeling paste on cradled masonite panel...then I cut in shapes with various implements, used plastic wrap that I pulled from off the boards (instead of throwing it out, I put it to good use!) to squish and pull the texture, and then scumbled in the colors after it set up...

It's not done yet...almost...I need to live with it for a bit and see where I want to go with it next...I'm just loving the greens...in my line of work at the day job, I am around bronze sculpture an I love the polished surfaces, and even the corrosion is pretty...

Here's some shots of the details:


And I love ancient bronzes and such...and this thing too, it's an ancient machine that was found in the Mediterranean (I can never remember, let alone spell the name of the gadget, but I love it), has been an inspiration...

And then there's this lovely stuff...lichen


and this moss on a dead tree...

Beautiful stuff...
