Utah’s Jana Roberts Benzon’s latest new pins/pendants show off her wing-like dimensional, veneer-covered collages.
She’s about to offer her work on Etsy in a few weeks after years of resisting online sales. She’also promises to beef up her Instagram. It may be the grandbabies who are compelling her to stick closer to home.
While we wait for Etsy to launch her, enjoy Jana’s works on Facebook and her website.
It’s nearly February and time for the valentine parade to begin. Greece’s Anarina Anar leads us off with a new necklace.
Her hearts are assembled from several shapes, made of light clay shaded with pencils or inks. A black backing also serves to outline her bright colors. A bit of texture and some teardrop elements make hers an unusual treatment.
The hand-drawn colors and changing shapes keep your eye skittering around this gathering of hearts. You’ll find them on Etsy and Instagram.
Need a little more polymer love? Head over to StudioMojo for a taste of the wider world – lots of tidbits that we couldn’t cram into PCD. This week we hunt down the experimenters, track the exhibitionists and find new ways to keep your muse happy and your mojo working.
Zoom in on this polymer dog portrait to see how Delaware illustrator, Joseph Barbaccia paints with extruded strings of polymer.
His polymer brushstrokes are layered over each other. It looks like he works from corner to corner. Joseph’s subjects are usually people. This fuzzy, furry pet provided a welcome departure from humans.
His in-progress shots are from Instagram while his finished work appears on Facebook.
It seemed as though Florida’s Deb Groover (Debortina) was taunting us with this swimming pool painting that showed up on Instagram.
It turns out that she and Tina themselves are stuck in snow in Virginia.
Deb is working a little differently here with more small polymer elements in her works. The composition has a David Hockney feel to it.
Deb works on wooden panels and adds the background as the last element in her large paintings. If you need some bright sun, visit her on Instagram. See her work in person by checking her schedule for an event near you.
