BUTTON ABSTRACTS
small abstracts made from buttons and beads as well as paint
These paintings are mostly small and are comprised of paint embellished with button and beads. Many of them have gone through various stages and have taken many years (on and off) to complete. I believe that these ones here are now complete, although I wouldn't be surprised if I wanted to add something here or there to one or two of them! The use of buttons was simply an evolvement; I have used blobs of paint as focus points for a long time and adding buttons instead was a natural progression. Some people still think that "paintings" should be made of paint only, but I like the added optical and sculptural effect the buttons and beads give. Click round detail to see the paintings.
