Celebrating Summer Solstice

Mixed Media watercolor and acrylic magenta and gold

Mixed Media watercolor and acrylic magenta and gold – “Summer Solstice” – 9×12 300lb Arches Cold Press

I was splashing around with my paints this past weekend and decided to try mixing it up a bit by starting with watercolor and throwing on some acrylic to create some mixed media.

I really had no idea where I was going with this when I started… ┬áit simply evolved.

And then I realized maybe Mother Nature was speaking to me preparing me for the beginning of Summer Solstice which arrived in the Northern Hemisphere yesterday, June 20, 2016 at 6:34 pm EDT.

I think it started as a flower and ended up looking a bit like the sun – so I decided it is my Mixed Media Summer Solstice!

With summer beginning here, that means our friends in the Southern Hemisphere have just begun Winter Solstice, so may this piece be a reminder of warmth and flowers and sunshine to those entering or ending the season.

Cheers & Hugs,
