Laurie and the Secret Lab

......having the chance to watch an artist work always amazes me.
When talent moves from mind to hand through paint something really wonderful can happen.




Laurie Meseroll came to work in the Earth Angels "Secret Lab" to complete a group of mixed-media "Mud-Cakes" paintings...As ever, it is work we are both so very proud to showcase here at Earth Angels...


Here is something small and sweet in work....



And then completed...


Watch the evolution of the pieces in these images...
Look at this one she is working on... 


 Melissa popped over to see her too...


 And then here it is in finished form:

Here are another 2 in work....


And here they are finished after several days and many layers of her various mediums...


And look at this one...






I just loved watching her create, building story through color and texture as she worked...



And here are some more of the finished pieces...it's amazing how they move in color and form as Laurie adds layers...most of her peices have at least 15 layers, some much more...these are  some of my faves from her new collection....and more can be seen on the site....






...i love this one called "Mobile Abode" 


And this one is like none other and hosted in an antique frame... 

And of course, I adore her landscapes...

...and her florals too...

If you peek on the site you will see some more creations and be able to spot them in work on this post....


Thanks to Laurie for her wonderful work, she has promised to come back soon and finish the few pieces still here in work...

xxoo Jen
