Cabinet of Curiosities #3-- Mixed Media Painting



This is a mixed media painting called Cabinet of Curiosities #3.  A series of paintings in this grid-like style is emerging.  I used a lot of acrylic paints, gel sticks, pan pastels, my own watercolor illustrations and random ephemera.  I am linking this to Paint Party Friday.

The title is fantastic because it gives me such a place to start when I start looking at your painting. I love how the dark is working with the lighter areas to draw my eye!
