Small Paintings and Decorative Scrolled Paper


Robyn Gordon has posted lovely images of paper scrolls on Art Propelled right now.  I always love visiting there because she always does her homework and brings her viewers a multitude of images of whatever it is that she's interested in at the moment.  I have "discovered" so many wonderful artists there, thanks to her "sluething".  If you haven't visited Robyn's blog before, jump on over there and be sure to link to her website where you'll find her own, gorgeously carved totems and other objects. (She also happens to be featured this week on Patti Roberts-Pizzuto's ongoing Made by Hand series at Missouri Bend Studio.)

It being a glorious day in Portlandia, I was inspired to grab a stash of my own personal "scrolls," made from one of my mixed media-treated papers, and dash up to my garden shed where I knew the low afternoon light would be conducive to photographs.  I also managed to capture a couple of of decent photos of small paintings on mat board while I was up there. 

Hope you're having a wonderful weekend!!

I love these scrolls of decorative paper, especially as a grouping! I'm very much enamoured with the scroll myself! Thanks so much for mentioning the Made By Hand feature...cheers! Patti

I love Art Propelled. Robyn always has such wonderful things to show us. And you are really right about her doing the research. I follow her tumblr site and I am always wondering how it is all going to come together.
Nice work Gloria. As usual!

Excellent composition I like the contrast of tones and textures. It's like a beautiful abstract language, greetings.

Your images are very interesting. Love the scrolls with the glass stoppers.
