Hi, My name is Helen Grossman. I like to paint, read books, and learning a new forms of art and techniques. I love to learn and experiment with different medias and surfaces, like clay, paper, beads, gourds,it is always something new here to learn and grow. When I am feeling burn out I am reading books or taking my brushes and paint. Back in Ukraine I learned a decorative folk art style of painting called Petrikivka named after village it was born. You also could see some of my work on Instagram, @helldg123. Thank you for stopping by and if you have a moment, I would love to hear your feedback. Helen

Mixed Media

Hello , hello! Past year I got myself into big "troubles", called mixed media world :) Mixing things, watercolors, acrlyc paint, crayons, pencils, dripping the inks, layering, collage, splattering the paint, stamping, stencils, more and more. I will start with one of the latest canvases I did for Mixed Media yahoo group challenge - to use zipper in your project.. It was a burlap canvas from Michaels , I gessoed but you still could see a burlap material in some places, then I attached a zipper (that V you could see), some embellishment, gessoed again and then went on spraying inks, then a few more embellishment, and so on. Have a creative day! and thank you for stopping by! Helen
