Inner Child | Mixed Media Collage | Acrylic on Canvas | by Deborah Marsh
The Inner Child series was created specifically for a big art event in the Phoenix Art District, which was schedule for March of 2020, but was postponed indefinitely due to the COVID-19 shutdowns. It’s now being featured as a virtual exhibit by the Vertigo Art Gallery, where this series is being featured. The techniques, medium, and materials used are like that of the Glitter Gals collection. The subjects featured are influenced by mostly children that I know.
The technique used is similar to the Glitter Gals series. The whole painting is done in a series of layers, and paint techniques, including paint pour designs for the leaves, glitter for the eyes and dress, as well as some jewelry.
Big Eyes, is one of 6 paintings, and the first in this series of large, mixed-media collage, acrylic over canvas paintings. Big Eyes was inspired by my beautiful, and smart, great niece.
