I’m so pleased to see your new pieces on the site. I recognized them immediately, but appreciate the airier, lighter touch in some of the new spaces. The first Improvisation is particularly engaging, as…"
"Hi Chalda, Thank you for offering some insight into these newer works. While I see strong formal threads connecting the new pieces to your previous work, I now see the emphasis on life forces and renewal. "

Hi Chalda, Your work is stunning. I'm especially interested in the way you describe your medium. I also work digitally and have experimented with several ways to state my medium successfully. As it appears in your descriptions you combine traditional media with digital, is this correct?

Mixed Media: Watercolor, Chalk & Oil Pastels, Calligraphy, Digital
I list the media in the order of it's use in the creation of the artwork. Usually the digital aspect is last. After scanning the traditional work at high resolution I digitally add other elements, paint and add textures. I print them in small limited edition print ranges of usually 3 or 10.
This seems to be the acceptable standard for the juried exhibitions that I enter. I'm interested in hearing your experiences and comments.
