Duo Koi

Duo Koi

"Duo Koi" is a new piece that was created upon the return of seeing my Mother. ( Also created at the same time was Pears on Gold.
Inspired by her and many of my older pieces, I felt the pull to work an older technique of mine. Needless to say my days spent with her were wonderful.
The archival paper that Duo Koi is rendered measures 18" x 15". The area I would expose through the opening in a mat would be approximately 14" x 11". (This is what I show in my first photograph, I have also included the full sheet of paper.)
This painting begins as the paper is primed for the gold leaf and then I added a watercolor and acrylic mix to create my orange, which borders varying amounts of the gold leaf section. The Koi and water lily pads are then rendered on top of the gold leaf with the same mix of paints and pencil.

This piece does require glass. Enjoy all the possibilities in matting and framing.

Iris Gentle Sway

Iris Gentle Sway

" Iris Gentle Sway" is an acrylic painting on a triple primed canvas. I prepared this surface in numerous levels. First doing my triple prime in a deeper value. The canvas measures 12" x 12" x 1 1/2". I added numerous archival papers, leafing and textiles to the surface and then added more pigment to create my deep purple hue. This required 3 layers and sanding. I then masked off my area for my blossoms and stems and added a medium to secure the edges. The negative space coloration is over the deep purple and reveals the Iris and interest. This color can best be characterized as a translucent cream wash, where strokes are evident. The sides of the painting retain the deep black/purple. The Iris blossoms float in the space with an abundance of subtle texture a color waves. This is a great pairing to "Iris Light". Frame is included, overall size framed in a floater frame, 14 1/4" x 14 1/4" Lots of tactile texture.

Blue Koi

Blue Koi

"Blue Koi" is an acrylic painting with a collage base. My love for texture and muted hues truly reveals itself in this painting. Very narrow, this painting measures 16" wide and 40" in height. The approach to this painting is similar to "Dark Lotus" and "Blue Stone Magnolia". I began with a triple primed stretched canvas surface, with a darker acrylic wash. I then added archival papers and prepared textiles to the surface and coated with additional layers of acrylic paint in deep blue hues. I later masked off the areas I wanted to remain the deep blue and sealed those area. Next painting layers of acrylic paint in oyster off white, yellow ocher, rust and glazes. the excitement happens in removing the mask to reveal the fish and plant life. Lots of underlying coloration and tactile texture.
This painting has a gloss finish, and could accept a frame, however the canvas is wider, 1 7/8" sides are painted a deep blue black color.
There is some gold leafing in this piece.
I welcome any questions.

Blue Koi and Dark Lotus are those wonderful pieces that when you bring them home you will find so many locations to place them in your home or collection. The size makes them so versatile on that slim/column wall or smaller wall you want to bring attention to. The sphere raised shapes in "Blue Koi" add deminsion as well as the feeling of water space and interest. Love the process, love the result.

Enjoy, Nancy

Lotus in the Pond

Lotus in the Pond

"Lotus in the Pond", is part of a series where I am creating a backdrop of color and texture through paint and collage technique. I love the poppy as a flower and I love lotus and several others equally. Here I have tapped into the Lotus image (Dark Lotus, done with similar technique and size has sold, but you can reference that painting). After layers of pigment and the proper mediums and masks, I created the number of floral images I wanted for the painted surface. Using mask and medium I developed the arrangement and then stepped into the next family of pigments that would reveal my assembly of plant life (composition). Such excitement as the reveal happens. This painting is created on a triple primed stretched canvas that measures 30" x 15" x 1.5". I love this size because it fits so many places and ushers you into a new space that might not have been utilized with such a surprise factor. I was unable to share that there is less than a 1/4" border on the painted surface that is a contrasting rust hue which floats in and out, but the side of the painting are painted the subtle rust! Contact me for additional picture, I will be happy to supply. This painting is full of visual and tactile texture, but it shows restraint, the colors are there, but do not scream. Enjoy, Nancy

I love the poppy as a flower and I love lotus and several others equally. Here I have tapped into the poppy image, similar to Dark Lotus, done with similar technique and size which has sold, but you can reference that painting.

Dark Lotus

Dark Lotus

"Dark Lotus" is an acrylic painting with a collage base. My love for texture and muted hues truly reveals itself in this painting. Very narrow, this painting measures 16" wide and 40" in height. And will add drama to any location. The coloration really changes with the lighting in the room, the painting seems to be a bit of the chameleon, but basically it is darker hues of brown and a grayed brown, with many other subtle colors breaking through or underlying the brown surface and nudging their way to be seen.
This painting has a semi gloss finish, and could accept a frame, however the canvas is a wider frame and the painting carries over onto the 1 7/8" sides.
There is some gold leafing in this piece.

I added numerous archival papers and textiles to the surface and then added more pigment to create my blue stone appearance. This required 3 layers and sanding. I then masked off my area for my blossoms and stems and added a medium to secure the edges. Next decided to move to a stone coloration of a mix of warm and cool hues in layers and a process of removing. Last is to remove my mask to reveal the blossoms, and added the subtle red/rust vein that I allowed to run through one of the wet acrylic layers. I decided to paint the side of the canvas the mottled stone coloration.

Enjoy with or without a frame.

Pears on Gold

Pears on Gold

"Pears on Gold" is a new piece that was created upon the return of seeing my Mother. Inspired by her and many of my older pieces, I felt the pull to work an older technique of mine. Needless to say my days spent with her were wonderful.
The archival paper that Pears on Gold is rendered measures 15" x 10.25. The area I would expose through the opening in a mat would be approximately 12.5 x 7". (This is what I show in my first photograph, I have also included the full sheet of paper.)
This painting begins as the paper is primed for the gold leaf and then I added a watercolor and acrylic mix to create my orange, which borders in varying amounts three sides of the positive area. The pears are then rendered on top of the gold leaf with the same mix of paints and pencil.

This piece does require glass. Enjoy all the possibilities in matting and framing.

Floral Prance

Floral Prance

It is funny how you move on as an artist to explore different ideas and subjects, until a collector visits the studio and brings back the importance of a subject and time. In 2009 I did approximately 30 of these types. I had 5 left in the studio, I seemed to be blind to them. Now I am looking at them through a different lens and decided to place them on this site . (the collector purchased two)
The interesting thing to me is that they work as smaller pieces which they are, but I now see them (if the print structure allows) as larger pieces. So even try the print option if available.

Floral Prance is a 10" x 10" x 1 5/8", acrylic painting on a wood canvas. I did collage and prime the surface prior to painting. The painting is carried over onto the sides, but can be framed if desired. If you choose to frame, I would suggest a floater frame that would handle this depth of wood canvas.

Tapestry Poppies

Tapestry Poppies

"Tapestry Poppies", is a acrylic/mixed media painting on a 24" x 24" x 1.5" stretched canvas. These started as my interested in a dirty pour/swipe technique, but wanting to take it further. I have down a number of these, but added more manipulation of the paints to create my effects.

I started a blog, and unfortunately, I messed that up today and hope to get that back up and running. I explained this piece from start to finish.
I began with a dirty pour/swipe, in three sections, the third section was after the first two dried. I then planned the mass and linear painting using two of the coloration used prior (bronze and orange. Decided to go with poppy flower which is a favorite of mine and a tapestry look. I used collage to create the poppies and gold linear work.
Followed up with three layers of glaze sanding in between each.
This is a lot of color for me, but it has some magic in the patterns and how they compliment.

Even if you are not planning on purchasing a print, check out the print option and play with it. It costs nothing to play and you can even play with wall colors. It is a fabulous tool. Enjoy

This is such a Wow on the wall, mix your collection to add that eclectic excitement! I am so.. pleased with this piece and anxious to do more.

Enjoy, Nancy

Sacred Red II

Sacred Red II

Sacred red II, is an acrylic/ mixed media painting on a 12" x 12" stretched canvas. I have explained this process on my blog, nancybossert.blogspot.com. My Blog has a direct link from my artspan site.

This is handled in the same manor as "Granite Narcissus" and "Tapestry Poppies" and I have a new figurative in progress using the same technique. Follow me on Instagram: bossertnancy and you can see many additional pieces not always making it to my on-line sites. I always welcome questions and comments.

On this one I utilized the pour/swipe technique with acrylic and then worked back into the piece. And, yes, I did include the face of Christ in the poppy.

Christian iconography of the poppy: A poppy may represent sleep or indifference because of its narcotic qualities. It is sometimes used in depictions of the Passion of Christ as a reference to the sleep of death.

I added numerous collage pieces with a variety of patterns and visual textures in a specific color theme. I wanted the poppies to become one with the acrylic pour/swipe and then my inclusion of additional painted areas. I added gold linear work in creating more patterns and in edging. The final varnish is a satin. I enjoy the satin look and feel to the completed piece. This is framed in a fantastic gold crackle wood floater frame and is wired for immediate hanging.

My Blog, linked to Artspan, explains the technical and some of the emotional aspects of my work. nancybossert.blogspot.com.

Enjoy, Nancy

I did complete a figurative piece working this way, "Dreams", which is also shown in steps on my blog. I have a second female figurative that I am
now working on.

A plus with this size canvas is it can be easily framed, no glass. Where the deeper canvases look fine unframed or in floater frames.

Poppy Pour

Poppy Pour

Working in art just feels so good.... Whether I am working with the human figure, the beautiful poppy, or exploring the fabulous space of abstractions.... all make me what I am and how my hands work.

Check out my blog, nancybossert.blogspot.com ,( or hit my blog link on artspan), where I try to break down the mechanical process and the emotional process of a few of my paintings. For me it doesn't seem far fetched that I will find the urge to create some jewelry pieces for galleries and on line. Touching the textures and seeing the colors, shapes and forms will have a direct relationship to my paintings.

"Poppy Pour" is still pushing my interest in the pour/swipe technique of painting, but pushing it to a different place. I did this with a few of the recent flower pieces and with "Dreams". I just traveled and was able to visit a favorite model. We had some great time spent, but the images I have of her are different than normal for me. So I am anxious to see where I go with these.

Again, with "Poppy pour" this piece involves numerous steps to get to my end result. I do teach on line privately and teach in my studio also. Inquiries are always welcome.

This piece needs to be under glass. The paper measures 30" x 22 1/2". The paper I always use is archival, 100% cotton rag and acid free. The area I would expose through the opening in a frame or mat would be approximately 27 1/2" x 19" .

Midnight Lotus

Midnight Lotus

I have always loved to render a few flowers. That rendering occurs between other images; I will rock back to explore a flower I enjoy. This happens to be the lotus, inspired by my pond.

This is similar to "Dark Lotus" which has been sold and was a vertical piece. This, however is a square format, and the technique requires numerous levels of work for the end result. I wanted to keep it dark, but the piece can really change when exposed to a room with more lighting.

The color base, other than it is a heavily collage surface, is deep tonal blue and rust. This still allows some of the collage elements to take on their own coloration. I then use layers of medium and then mask my flower and stem areas. I wanted this to remain low key, the value change between the flower elements and the negative space, so once I mask off, it is hard to exact the hue that is underneath. I use the same coloration of paints with more medium and glaze, hoping to create the subtle variation between positive and negative areas.

I was very pleased to see the result when masking was removed. Then an additional layer of proper acrylic varnish was necessary to finish. I believe I will still frame if not purchased prior.

Enjoy, watch your wonderful flowers at night. They dance and sparkle.

Glory Poppy

Glory Poppy

"Glory Poppy" is a poppy painting using mixed media techniques including acrylic paint and wax (encaustic work), plus collage on archival paper. The paper measures 30" x 22". However I would expose an area of approximately 27" x 19 or a bit greater.

The poppy rich in coloration spreads its petals as if they were wings. The left hand side reveals some of my favored tile work in two dimension art.
This fine art piece does require glass.
