As December approaches, I am reminded of the wonderful memories this month holds… the joys of good times with friends and family… the sharing of love and blessings. I painted a piece too large to scan so I share it here in three pieces: left, right, and middle… this is the middle portion.

This painting was made using old lipstick, acrylic, tissue, brass, mica, and ink on the 20″ × 20″ gallery wrapped canvas.


acrylic, unique, healing waters, therapy, water, abstract, texture, light therapy, creative, truth, emotions, honesty, watercolor, hope, trust, faith, happiness, jubilation, joy, joyful, reflections, understanding, vibrant, african american art, sunny day, color, colorful, art therapy, grief therapy, survivor, creativity, inspiration, autumn, fall

I’m an abstract-expressionist painter… a mixed media, encaustic, collage artist who uses a non-objective, emotive style of creative expression and visual messaging. I create to survive, to LIVE with more JOY and less pain. ART (plus faith in God) is what sustains me.

    Looks to me like you have a masterpiece, here, Angela.

  • YOU have made my day, Frannie! :) I had the most fun doing this piece… but I really had to work at it so your comments mean a lot! Pardon me, but I want to share a short story about this: My family INSISTED I throw away all my old make-up. Especially the lipsticks. I had lipsticks that were still new in their package… but they were about 18 years old. LOL. Admittedly, I must have been crazy trying to keep them. Anyway, long story short, I remember reading an interview here on RB about using lipstick to paint with and thought I’d give it a try. What tripped me up was that I forgot that lipstick has OIL at its base… so drawing with it and then expecting the acrylic I used to adhere to it took some doing! What a mess I made. LOL Of course, I fixed it and it is now in good shape archival-wise, but I had to really work and rework some areas. I learned a great deal, trust! :)
