The Mud-Cakes are coming...the Mud-Cakes are coming...

...some of you know that artist Laurie Meseroll has been back in NY this summer.
 She loves it here and has long maintained a summer studio in Woodstock, NY
This year, Laurie is making Warwick and the Earth Angels Secret Lab her base.  She was here in June, and she will soon be back to continue work on a new series of wonderful mixed-media paintings...

Laurie calls them her Mud-cakes...these paintings emerge for layer upon layer of paint, fabric and paper; Laurie is masterful with her bold use of technique and her knowledge of pigment blending.

Here are stacks of canvases in work...you can see some of them finished below and on the site...take a peek and see if you can spot them!
  


Here are a few shots of Laurie at work...

Here it is in work...

...and here it is finished...



Here Laurie shares technique with Melissa....


Florals were a bloom...





Here was Laurie as she was loading up to head back to MI...we miss you Laurie...
come back to the Secret Lab soon!





xxoo Jen
