Many artists find the move into abstraction a difficult and uncertain one because they lack the proper guidance needed to take this bold step. In this inspirational workbook, award-winning mixed media artist Claire Harrigan leads painters towards non-representational painting through the use of color. Fantastically illustrated throughout and featuring sound technical advice, it covers every aspect of abstract painting, from concepts and influences, inspirations and starting points to approaching subjects, basic design considerations, and surface textures. Step-by-step analyses of Harrigan’s own work demonstrate the importance of color contrast, harmony, and impact in a range of mixed media.
Chism Talbert had loved her first, and best -- but he had broken her heart. He was the caretaker's handsome son.
She was Minta Westerly, the privileged girl who'd surrendered to him one starry summer night -- then been abandoned when he abruptly left town. Now she was back in the big house where she'd spent family vacations -- and suddenly, impossibly, Chism walked through the door, pinning her with mesmerizing eyes that burned with fury and desire. Both were haunted by the dreams they'd woven together, the promises they'd whispered under a willow tree -- and both were devastated by a misunderstanding that still felt like a betrayal. But the years apart and the pain they had denied only fed the fires of passion that sizzled within. Minta longed to taste the magic of Chism's lips once more, even if he insisted that time had made them strangers. Could she make him see she belonged in his world, and that he would have a home in her heart forever?
