"Untold"

"Untold"

"Untold " is an acrylic painting on a deeper stretched canvas measuring 24" x 24" x 1 1/2". Subject is one of my models, same model that posed for "Baptism" and several others. However, this is a loose handling of the upper portion of the figure and she has sunglasses on.
This is a square format and is not framed, nor does it need framing. This is wired and ready to hang. Interior view shows what
it might look like with a black floater frame.

The young woman has a tattoo on her arm, but this is a story. Tattoos are so beautiful and to the wearer they most often have a story or a meaning for why they chose the image they chose to have inked. Here in "Untold" I want the viewer to question the figure and the tattoo, almost like the Scarlet Letter, she is wearing a mental tattoo. That is why the tattoo is rendered in random stamping. Narrative, does her posture, sunglasses actually reveal she has much on her mind, much that is "Untold" but the way we carry ourselves is actually being revealed to others around us.
Take time to contemplate the many ways we communicate.
I always have a narrative to my pieces, whether using iconography, through gestures, colorations etc., this also includes my abstractions.
Enjoy, Nancy

Lucy

Lucy

Wanting to delve into the strength of seeing and practicing my craft, I chose the image of one of my grandchildren. This young lady started helping me in the studio at the age of 3 rubbing the glaze off stoneware pieces, so the glaze would remain in the grooves. We played and learned so much together. We shared and laughed, and continue to do so. She did my makeup and I did hers. She painted, drew, and created so often in the studio, and still loves to create and explore.
My life is full and a journey that never ends.
This piece is only available in prints. Let her eyes and the cupid bow (her beautiful lips) take you on a journey.
Enjoy, Nancy
This is a mixed media piece including a paint and pencil.
Arspan has wonderful print and frame options. There is no obligation to play with this feature, it is wonderful. The original is not for sale, but limited prints are for sale. Enjoy

Red Dress

Red Dress

"Red Dress" is a mixed media / encaustic painting on archival paper. The paper measures 22" x 15" . I would crop in for matting and framing a viewing area of approximately 20" x 13". This will allow a small portion to go under the matting. The 20" x 13" is what I show in my first image of this piece.
I will show the stages in the creation of this fine art piece on my blog #nancybossert.blogspot.com which provides a more intimate view on how I create and specifically with this piece.

I love this piece for many reasons, I love the color of the dress repeating in the upper right negative space, the texture, the light, and the linear elements. I enjoy the use of collage, paint, stamping (texture) and oil paint and encaustic technique.

I am so fortunate to love what I do, love to create, love to inspire.
I would recommend a 5 - 6" mat around this piece to allow it to breathe. When I frame I allow for a heavier bottom mat, that just means that the dimension at the bottom is greater than the top and sides. It is a visual weight that makes the piece seem to hang more firmly on the wall, So increase the bottom dimension by an 1". You will be surprised at what that does.
Also, Artspan offers the wonderful opportunity of frame options. You may still want to purchase and own the original, but play with this option. There is no obligation to "play". You will be able to see how different colored mats look on the piece as well as white, and different frame choices. You can even change the paint color on the wall.
I always welcome questions.
I was just asked a question about my final stage in this piece where I use an oil wash and then wipe it off. The question was , was this to give an antiquing look to the piece? My response: not antiquing, but it may give that final appearance. The oil wash will give another unifying factor of tone to the entire piece. But, I have scribed into the piece prior to my oil wash. the scribing allows for more linear elements to happen. I can still work on the piece if I want to, but generally just move on. Another side line. This is my daughter, but the wonderful thing about it is she is wearing a dress of mine that I made and wore when I was 22! 😍 She is just the best!!! However the dress is a green floral print. #Artisticlicense lol
Most of all, Enjoy, nancy

Denim Jacket

Denim Jacket

"Denim Jacket" is a mixed media / encaustic painting on archival paper. The paper measures 22" x 13 1/2" . I would crop in for matting and framing a viewing area of approximately 18 1/2" x 12". This will allow a small portion to go under the matting. The 18" x 12" is what I show in my first image of this piece.
I will show the stages in the creation of this fine art piece on my blog #nancybossert.blogspot.com which provides a more intimate view on how I create and specifically with this piece.

I love this piece for many reasons, love that the figure is horizontal but on a vertical format. Enjoy the use of collage, paint, stamping (texture) and oil paint and encaustic technique. Note that I even include a segment where her left arm sleeve is graphite and how I make that transition.
I am so fortunate to love what I do, love to create, love to inspire.

"Thoughts in the Room " is a mixed media / encaustic painting on archival paper. The paper measures 22" x 15" . I would crop in for matting and framing a viewing area of approximately 20" x 14 1/2".

I believe my favorite part of this piece is her extended foot in addition to the overall texture, light, and linear elements. I enjoy the use of collage, paint, stamping (texture) and oil paint and encaustic technique.

Pink Hair

Pink Hair

"Pink Hair", is a mixed media, painting on archival paper.
Just so appreciative that I can spend time with my family, my art community and the creative process.

Rendering the female figure is still a favorite, with adult or children, the passion is with me to practice my skills and grow everyday. I love working on a watercolor 300lb or 400lb hot press paper, which allows a multitude of materials and techniques. Here I allow my base acrylic paint to show through the figure. The way the upper portion looks is how I prepped the entire sheet. Then adding high lights and low lights with paint, pastel and pencil my figure emerges using some of the negative space to integrate with my figure.
Again my love show in the use of mass areas and linear work. And the pink/teal hair makes it's appearance again.

This is not a terribly big piece, but does require glass. The paper measures 21" x 12 1/2", but expose an area of approximately 17" x 9 1/2" through the opening of a mat. I would then add approximately a 4" mat to top and sides and a 4 1/2 bottom mat for visual weight.

Dreams

Dreams

"Dreams" is a mixed media acrylic painting with pencil on archival paper. My preference is 300 lb Hot press, cotton rag. I always stretch my paper prior to work.
This particular piece I show on my blog, which can be accessed through my site on art span. I show the steps that created this piece and the whys.
This was started by a photo session with one of my models. I love odd angles, vantage points and then wanted to combine numerous techniques.
This paper measures 22.5" x 30". My work is priced by size and material. I would crop the image view in the mat to reveal an area of approximately 18 1/2" x 24" . You could extend the opening more, However, where I have the first image shown is how much I would reveal. I will crop the paper slightly now that it is complete to 20.5" x 27".

Seated Teal Hair

Seated Teal Hair

So this morning I was just feeling fresh and wanted to move a variety of colors in rendering a few female nudes. I created two on a smaller scale. They are both 10" x 10" x 1.5" deep.

I chose the palette by random selection, and used the same palette on both, the other "Sunning Inside"

Fun way to be able to start out the morning. Well, doing art at anytime of the day is fabulous.

On both I allowed linear to come into play; if by painting lines or inscribing into the surface. Not sure why I have been drawn to the teal color hair lately, but I love how it looks on the rendered female.

This is currently unframed, but would look super in a floater frame.

Check out the wonderful options offered through Artspan prints. Whether or not you desire the original or print, you can view the piece framed and even on a specific wall color. An excellent option that is at your fingertips.

"Black Line Nude, Vulnerable"

"Black Line Nude, Vulnerable"

"Black Line Nude, Vulnerable" is currently in an exhibition, "Twenty-Seventeen, A Year in Review" with a 2nd juried piece of mine "Huh" (post truth).

They are both for sale, but only at the brick and mortar gallery until the close of the exhibition and then will be priced on this site. However, prints can always be purchased and I encourage all to look at that option if offered. It helps in determining how you like the original on the wall and if when you receive the original would you prefer a frame on it, or what options do you have with prints and various sizes. I will never allow more than ten prints of any of my pieces. When that number is reached the print option is removed.

On my artblog, nancybossert.blogspot.com you can read more about this piece and as it relates to Dirty Pours, and it is also under the 2017 exhibition. Enjoy, more information on the mental as well as physical process. There is a direct link to my blog on artspan.

This is a acrylic painting on a deep canvas, 12" x 9" x 1.5". I chose not to frame this piece, mainly because of the mental process and composition. I Love the sides of this canvas, which are painted, but very raw. A great contrast to the figure on the dark ground and the harsh outline. This is also my figure study I used in my watercolor nude recently posted.

This will be priced at $340.00 for the original.

Draped Torso

Draped Torso

The beauty of the human figure has been enjoyed and appreciated throughout the ages. This is handled somewhat like "Earth as Garment" (SOLD) and had always been a favorite in the monochromatic handling. Even though I say Monochromatic, this piece is actually filled with warm and cool colors, using them to create contour and cancel each-other out to neutralize. I use equally as many blues and greens in creating flesh as a do warm hues.
Here I painted the archival paper with an acrylic paint mixture. traveling from a dark on the left to a richer sienna brown moving to the right. Loving texture, I created stippling in water marks to interrupt my smooth surface.
Then using paint, gesso and pencil to allow my figure to emerge.
Full paper measures 22" x 15". I would crop in on the figure as shown in my first image as what should fill the opening in a mat or frame, approximately 16" x 11-12". However, you have a wide range if you would like to expose more.
Check out the wonderful print option on Artspan even if you want to purchase the original. This tool is so helpful in looking at this fine art piece in a frame and on different colored walls.

Raven Hair

Raven Hair

"Raven Hair" is a new mixed media painting on 100% archival paper.
I show and add text on how this piece was created on my artspan blog and I welcome all comments and questions.

This is a nice size piece, with the paper measuring 15 1/2 " x 14 1/2". The area I would expose is pretty much how the main photograph crops the piece, revealing an image of approximately 14" x 12 1/2".
Coloration is orange, orange/rust, teal, black, white and flesh tones. This is a mixed media painting which incorporates, acrylic paint, gesso, watercolor, ink and pencil.
Very pensive is the pose, dreamlike for your interior space. Has a looseness to balance the tight.
Create your own narrative, I always have mine.
Enjoy.
Please take time to play around with the print option even if your desire is the original. Costs nothing to play and you can view on different colored walls. I limit the number of prints to 10 of any of my pieces. Once that number is obtained the print option in removed.

Dark Room Nude

Dark Room Nude

"Dark Room Nude" is a female nude figurative piece on archival paper. This is a mixed media painting which includes, watercolor, acrylic, and pencil, plus. This type of work does require glass.

I drew out my figure and then added my collage around and on the figure. Then I started painting areas. I again chose the teal hair which separates all the brown/warm hues within the figure and the negative space. I enjoy the variety of textures without them competing with each other.

The figure allows a number of the negative space to play through her.

Enjoy.

The paper measures, 21" x 14", but I would expose an area of 17 1/2" x 10 1/2" trough the opening in a mat or frame.

submerge

submerge

"Submerge", is a mixed media painting on 100% cotton rag, acid free paper. The subject is one of my favorite models, she also modeled for "Baptism". I love the coloration of my color base that also incorporates into the figure. Here the female figure is suspended , holding somewhat of a ballerina pose, as her arms, leg and hip area penetrate the water's surface. I am not as concerned about the water aspect, as I am with the overall feel of the human figure, my balance of color, and use of mass and linear. The entire paper measures approximately 30" x 22 1/2". I have attached a photo of the full sheet. I staple my paper when I stretch it. The cropped in version, not revealing that white perimeter measures approximately 27" x 19". Enjoy all the matting and framing possibilities. Enjoy, Nancy

Lowering into the Pool

Lowering into the Pool

"Lowering Into the Pool", is part of a pool/figurative series that I am working on. Primed, archival, 100% rag paper is being used with acrylic paint and a variety of mixed media materials.
I love working this way, with a strong painted base allowing that color to come through my imagery to create an overall harmony between positive and negative space.
The model is a favorite that I work with, so I was able to capture a number of images for this series.
The paper measures 30" x 22.5" but I would crop in slightly on the paper to reveal an image of approximately 27" x 18.5" through the opening in a mat.
Framing possibilities are limitless.
Enjoy
Loving mass and Line work!

Baptism

Baptism

"Baptism" was just selected for an exhibition "Renaissance Women". a juried exhibition that will be held at the Banana Factory Gallery.

"Baptism", is now complete and is a painting using mixed media techniques. I worked from one of my favorite models and the pose was difficult to capture, but we did succeed. The gold is actually present on my photographs also. This piece is on 300lb. archival, acid free, 100% cotton rag paper. I first soak and stretch my paper before proceeding with any work. I have numerous images of this piece in progress. I start with gesso because I love the tooth it gives me to work. There is know collage technique onto this piece. I used acrylic, minimal watercolor and colored pencil. The image utilizes almost the full extent of the paper, but I would crop in on the paper to reveal what I have shown in the primary image which measures 19 1/2" x 27-28". I would put a wide mat on this piece and I always add a heavier bottom mat which is a visual that makes a piece seem to hang firm to the wall. For instance the top and sides should have the same mat measurement but the bottom should be slightly larger. Your eye doesn't usually recognize that difference, but the way the piece hangs on the wall is more balanced, weighted and soothing.
Enjoy, Nancy
Materials: archival paper, gesso, acrylic paint, watercolor, colored pencil, love

I Love the model, the suggested handling techniques, i love enhancing every surface with visual texture: these are important components to the end result. You will find that I move from the abstract into suggested realism. I truly find this works best for me. I find that when I do a number of abstracts in succession they become mechanical. And that is not how I begin my movement into painting abstract, this is the same with my figurative pieces. I never want to trivialize my work or subject, and by moving between the two areas I can focus on my balance, composition structure, coloration and amount of tightness. I am truly blessed to be able to work and have patrons that recognize the hand whether it is my abstract or figurative work.
My love and passion is my family and my art. I continue to create and learn everyday. If I have to travel I do not take paints I take fibers, and create whimsical hats and poncias (ponchos that can be worn 5+ ways) never with a patterns but always with attitude and fun. Again, blessed that my hands work and that I can do and teach. Questions are always welcome. Enjoy

Enjoy, nancy

Transcend

Transcend

"Transcend" is part of my pool series. This is a mixed media /encaustic painting on archival paper. Here my model floats in the pool with a white gauze shirt. The water actually had golden sparkles of light throughout and I played on this with the additional of yellow ocher. I attached the full sheet, but where I cropped is where I feel the painting should be revealed, However it can be opened up more. This piece will arrive matted, I build up the mat so glass will not touch the painting. Size indicated the shipping size. Image size is what I would suggest being shown through the mat, 22" x 15. 5" When you view the full sheet of paper, the work goes almost to the edge of the 22" x 30". Overall mat size when shipped will be approximately 25" x 30". Again, this can be re matted and opened up to be larger.

Lay Me Down

Lay Me Down

"Lay Me Down", a mixed media, painting on archival paper.
Just so appreciative that I can spend time with my family, my art community and the creative process.

Rendering the female figure is still a favorite, with adult or children, the passion is with me to practice my skills and grow everyday. I love working on a watercolor 300lb or 400lb hot press paper, which allows a multitude of materials and techniques. Here I allow my base acrylic paint to show through the figure. The way the upper portion looks is how I prepped the entire sheet. Then adding high lights and low lights with paint, pastel and pencil my figure emerges using some of the negative space to integrate with my figure.
Again my love show in the use of mass areas and linear work. And the blue/teal hair makes it's appearance again.

This is not a terribly big piece, but does require glass. The paper measures 15" x 22", but expose an area of approximately 12" x 19" through the opening of a mat. I would then add approximately a 4" mat to top and sides and a 4 1/2 bottom mat for visual weight.

Standing Room

Standing Room

"Standing Room" to love creating is such a wonderful feeling, and sharing and teaching makes the passion even more pleasurable and exciting. I love handling the figure. And with this model, I decided to focus on the legs which revealed the youth and muscle when wearing the heel. The mix of colors is such a heavy blend of cool and warms that it becomes an overwhelming play with the movement of my hands, I cannot say that it is soft, but a stronger hand, until I reach the blend desired. This is classified as a painting on archival, acid free, 100% cotton rag paper. I have used a number of materials to achieve the end result including acrylic paint, watercolor, gesso, pencil, oil, and encaustic (wax). The play and sequence of materials is very important, but wonderful to feel each material and push the process. This is not a huge piece. The full paper measures 22" x 15". The area I would choose to expose through the opening in a mat ( as revealed in my 1st view) would be approximately 19 3/4" x 10 1/2". I matted this in white with a raised mat so that the mat does not touch the surface of the piece. "Standing Room" does require glass. Mat and backing is included. this fits a 30" x 20" frame.

Escaping Burdens

Escaping Burdens

I am fascinated with creating allegorical pieces, I have always been intrigued with the use of iconography in art. Here I can tell a story or allow the viewer to create their own narrative. The composition has to be strong and I will tend to work with textured both tactile and visual. So much is suggested, but I find that my eye will flow and continue to find new places to rest and become absorbed. That is why I enjoy so many abstract artists as well as creative realists. When you appreciate the arts in any form, you find great enjoyment in all you see; whether a rough wall, flowing water over rocks, stones just uprooted in a field, etc.

This fine art piece is a painting on primed 100% archival paper, acid free, cotton rag. I started by laying out the study of my model and new I wanted the addition of a crow. I used some collage techniques, acrylic paint, watercolor, wax, inscribing into my surface, and oil. This piece does require glass, and no art work should be placed in direct sunlight or close to a heat source.
The over all size of the paper is 16.5" x 22", but I would crop in to reveal an area of approximately 14" x 16" wide. There is more that could be opened up to view, and I include that in one of my extra photographs, but I prefer a tighter image being presented. Add a large mat, or frame to the edge, you will receive the entire paper.

I have attached a photograph of how this piece might be framed. However, your choices are limitless, this is a 20" x 24" frame. This piece does not include the mat and frame.

Painting is a very personal process, it feels so fabulous to create. Enjoy, I welcome all questions, nancy

I just explained "Escaping Burdens" on my nancybossert.blogspot.com
A favorite piece, that just keeps on giving. Love and struggle. Enjoy

Mixing Dreams

Mixing Dreams

After completing a number of larger pieces for commissions and galleries; it was so much fun to work on a smaller scale in the studio. So I did a number of small abstractions that I am loving, which are matted in 10" x 8" mats for super easy framing. Now here are some figurative and they are going out for the first time tonight. I can't wait to do some more. So enjoy, Mixing Dreams is a mixed media acrylic on canvas board measuring 6" x 6". I matted this to fit a 12" x 12" frame and it looks super.

Cerulean Hair

Cerulean Hair

"Cerulean Hair" is a female model in the process of putting on a dress. This is a mixed media painting on a 100% cotton rag, archival, acid free paper. I utilized a number of techniques and materials to create "Cerulean Hair". First sketching my subject, using a water color wash to establish my color base, and a liquid mask. I built on my water color and added gesso and acrylic paint, and worked a family of colored pencils to the figure surface. I enjoy my model's left arm carrying the cerulean theme, and the touch of orange in the hair. As you view much of my work, you will notice my love of texture and mass/linear combination. I welcome all questions. The paper measures approximately 15" x 11". I would expose an area , through the mat, of approximately 13 1/2" x 9". I show the full area and the cropped area. On the full photo view you will notice that I staple my paper. The staples are to stretch the paper so I maintain a flat working surface. Enjoy, nancy

Verbal Scars

Verbal Scars

"Verbal Scars" is a seated nude female figure in a crouched position. A low light seems to reveal as a door/opening on the left. This becomes a visual metaphor for the emotional and the physical being. The vulnerability of what we might encounter , how we might want to handle what we are uncertain of.
After I thought this piece was complete, I had the opportunity to sit with a young woman wounded verbally for many years. This piece took on that hurt with the white markings revealed. Understand the process, I did not add the white on top of the piece, instead I sanded the surface and the white markings became evident. Nothing new was added, only what was taken away. This is a very low keyed piece. Know that we all have burdens and many of them don't show, but leave tremendous life long marks.
This is a mixed media painting using the encaustic method of wax.
The overall size of the paper measures 22" x 19". The area that should be exposed through the mat is approximately 18 1/2 x 16 1/2" . I would reveal the light coming in on the left and crop slightly on her back on the right.

Lots of visual texture. This piece does require glass.
Enjoy, Nancy
Play around with the print/frame option just to see how this original would look framed. I love wider mats on pieces. But most of all Enjoy,

Red Hair

Red Hair

"Red Hair" is a figurative, mixed media painting created on an archival paper that is 100% acid free and cotton rag. The paper measures approximately 15" x 22". However I would expose an area (as shown) of approximately 11 1/2" x 20" through the opening in a mat or frame.

I used acrylic paint, gesso, watercolor and some pencil to create "Red Hair". Similar in handling to "Willow Speak", "Wrapped Raw" and Rest Cradle", and same pose as "I waited". I love using the acrylic washed surface as my support and then create my linear figurative piece on top of the surface; being aware of utilizing the fluctuating values underneath. The linear becomes powerful, and especially love the Terra cotta hues in rendering the form.

This signed, Fine Art original does require glass.

Enjoy all the framing possibilities.

White Robe

White Robe

"White Robe" to love creating is such a wonderful feeling, and sharing and teaching makes the passion even more pleasurable and exciting. I love handling the figure. And with this model, I decided to focus on the upper torso, the robe, which created a wonderful white space to manipulate. The mix of colors is such a heavy blend of cool and warms that it becomes an overwhelming play with the movement of my hands, I cannot say that it is soft, but a stronger hand, until I reach the blend desired.

No Longer Running

No Longer Running

"No Longer Running" combines the beautiful abstract with a muted figurative/female rendering in pencil and paint. Using the same model as in "Eve" and several other paintings. I knew the direction I wanted this piece to go in as I established a heavily textured and colored collage surface. This painting is a 24" x 24" x 1.5" wood canvas. I am painting on a primed wood surface so it will take my numerous sanding and scratching techniques.
After adhering all my papers, I decided on a limited palette that would closely tie with the figure's coloration that would later be established. I moved over my rich collage with off white/ cream hues, which I diluted and allowed lime green, gray and other colors to show. I water colored my figure and diluted acrylic paint to create her base and then scratched out or roughened areas, sanded and then went back in with more of the negative space color and pencil work to bring more detail into areas.
There is an emptiness in mood, but much for the eye to cover in texture.

Waiting in Silence

Waiting in Silence

"Waiting in Silence" is a mixed media on 100% archival, acid free, 300 lb paper. This is part of my Allegorical series on paper. Currently this is only available in print form, but original should be available in February. Or contact me for exact information. The subject matter is my model draped in a white garment, I repeated Rubens sketch of a Women, so that they would be back to back. Both women have their hair pulled up. I placed a bird cage with an open door and feathers flying to set up my story as, my female figure seems unaware, out of context with the clamor. This uses almost the full extent of the paper. I have attached the paper as it is stretched to my board. The painted area measures approximately 28" x 20" and the paper size measure approximately 30" x 22". This should be matted with an ample sized mat, and placed under glass. Enjoy every section your eye moves over. Thank you, nancy

I would however, mat an opening of approximately 29" x 19 1/2" (as shown in image #1) . Additional images show entire sheet of paper, plus details.

Imagery includes three goldfinch. The significance whirls around the woman, the type of bird, yellow and the number 3.

The Posing

The Posing

"The Posing" is a drawing using a mixed media technique of pencil, some paint, marker, on 100% cotton rag, archival illustration board. This is an archival board that I love to work on.
There is still a lot of illusion in the creation of this Fine Art piece, and allowing the whiter areas to mover forward. I love how you can walk up to this piece and see the strokes that create the image.

The paper size measures 22" x 30". What I have shown is what I would reveal in the opening of a mat or frame. I would suggest matting is a 5-6 inch ma. The mat plus frame will make this a large piece.
I would keep the bottom edge with the slightly incomplete look to remind the viewer of what they are seeing.
The area I have revealed measures approximately 20" x 27".
Enjoy "The Posing", Nancy

"Contemplating Choices" is a figurative acrylic painting on archival, 100% cotton rag, acid free, primed water color paper.

The contemplative mood of the female figure allows you to move through the muted tones and feel the weight of her body on the cushions. No tears, just empty eyes. No hands to help her move into action.

"I Waited" is a figurative, mixed media painting created on an archival paper that is 100% acid free and cotton rag. The paper measures approximately 16" x 22 1/2". However I would expose an area (as shown) of approximately 12" x 19" through the opening in a mat or frame.

I uses acrylic paint, gesso, watercolor and some pencil to create "I Waited". Similar in handling to "Willow Speak", "Wrapped Raw" and Rest Cradle"

This signed, Fine Art original does require glass.


Enjoy, Nancy

Wrapped in White

Wrapped in White

"Wrapped in White" hangs in my dining area. I usually frame nice, but this one is over the top. I just loved the sensitivity of the model, the pose, the the molding.

As with so many of my pieces I love to let my surface suggest elements and in this case suggest the garment. I love the balance between a refined area and a beautifully handled linear area. This is not only left to my paintings but to all my art areas.

This is a mixed media with an image exposed through the opening of the mat of approximately 19" x 13". The support is archival and acid free. The mat is Khaki linen on the outside and it is triple matted. The mat dimension is 4 1/2" top and sides with a 5 " bottom mat. The frame is gorgeous! The frame has a front profile of wonderful carving and movement that measures 6 1/4".

The overall size of "Wrapped in White" measures 40 1/2" x 34".

I attached a few pieces that have been sold for your viewing.

Awakening

Awakening

"Awakening" is a mixed media on archival acid free paper. This is definitely my coloration and love of the figure and showing hands.

This piece has been stamped, as I have referred to in other paintings and with my pottery. I generally use two stamps, either a small block or a small flower. The flower I created in the 70's by making a mold for my Mother to use in her jewelry line. Sometimes I use a chop, I refer to it as my "friendship tree", or a double fish, both of which I carved.

Enjoy the negative space handling as well as her garment.

The image through the opening of the mat measures 18" x 13". and the overall framed size is 33 1/2" x 27 1/2". I generally have images in my files with the frame, but I do not and this is at a gallery. However, this is matted and framed. The frame is a wider warm silver subtle scoop.

Dressed in Lime Chiffon

Dressed in Lime Chiffon

"Dressed in Lime Chiffon" is an encaustic (wax and pigment), mixed media painting of a young woman with her head leaning back, wearing a top that the painting is titled for. The negative space is very warm and the coloration can best be described as sepia or rust hued which harmonizes with her flesh tone. The figure is at rest, a quiet moment. This piece measures approximately 20" x 20".

This piece is a mixed media painting using encaustic techniques. I first gessoed my archival, acid free paper to accept all my methods. I then added collage as my next step and toned it to accept the placement of my figure. The negative space is toned with acrylic paint and gesso. Next I render my figure, allowing the negative space coloration to become part of her figure; this creates a the unification of positive to negative. Added more paint as a base for hair, lime top, and any deeper areas. I also added whites and lights in paint to the lit areas. Then I love to go back in and add pencil to add to my high and low lights; this is all done with the addition of wax.

collage, acrylic paint, watercolor, colored pencil, archival paper, gesso.

No frame, piece is approximately 20"x 20". Can be framed to the edge or matted.

Violet Haze

Violet Haze

Violet Haze" is an encaustic (pigment and wax) on archival, acid free, 300 pound watercolor paper.
The image is that of seated female (a favorite model) with color domination in ocher and violet hues.

The cushion ushers the viewer into the figure, and the leg line moves you toward the face and back again.

The mounting is free floated revealing the deckled edge of the paper measuring 23" x 17 1/4" and is mounted on an acid free board of a soft gray smoke coloration. The piece is then double matted with an outside mat of soft stone (color core) and an inside mat of soft gray. The mat measurement is 4 3/8" top and sides with a bottom mat of 5 1/8". The bottom mat should always be larger for visual weight. The double mat is built up so that the image "Violet Haze" set deep into the mat and frame and not against the glass.

The overall mat size is 33" x 27".

This will be even larger framed - great statement piece.
Enjoy, Nancy

All my Fine Art is professionally package for shipping.

"Violet Haze" comes matted, but not framed. I also stitch quite often into my work and this has a few french knots that also hold the 300lb paper unto the archival backing board.

Image of Violet Haze with the mat can be emailed upon request.

Linear Made Flesh

Linear Made Flesh

"Linear Made Flesh" is a small fun find in the studio.

I truly love rendering the human figure, and here you see the female form in an encaustic (wax and pigment). The emphasis is on the figure and her face (head) is in shadow and not the area of attention. Zoom in for a close-up of the torso and see the numerous colorations that create the figure. Also view the etched line work.

This piece is created on Strathmore 500 acid free/ archival board, a wonderful surface to work on. This piece is not matted or framed, leaving so many possibilities for the final presentation to the collector. The overall size of the paper measures 12" x 11 1/4" and reveals some of my staple marks from the stretching process. I would probably exposed an area of 11" x 9" through the opening in the mat. The piece is dominated by a tobacco brown hue in the negative space which becomes a vital coloration to the body. The paper, which I typicaaly refer to as a board because of thickness, is hand dyed to the tobacco brown coloration.

That brown color is used as another color in my hand and works to harmonize my piece.

I welcome all inquiries, Enjoy, Nancy SOLD

Earth as Garment

Earth as Garment

"Earth as Garment" is an encaustic on archival/acid free watercolor paper. "Garment as Earth" was created with my love for the human form. With all our real and imagined imperfections, beauty is revealed. Her head slightly turned away and in shadow, mystery can still be sought in viewing the piece, the textures. What looks to be a monochromatic Fine Art piece, is actually loaded with coloration in subtle form. Take time to enjoy the quiet quality of "Earth as Garment", and create your own narrative. I attached a view of the entire piece of paper measuring approximately 30" x 20". However I would mat in on the piece where I have shown on the main image revealing approximately 26" x 17" through the opening of the mat. This will be quite large after matting and framing. Enjoy, Nancy
This is one of my favorites! Glad you are enjoying it!

Rhyolite Recline, mixed media

Rhyolite Recline, mixed media

Four Years ago this one 1st in its category in a major East Coast Invitational, the year prior another encaustic of mine "Remembering the 70's", was acknowledged as Best of Show.

This nude is more subdued in overall coloration compared to "Silver Leaf Recline ~ Sold". My favorite part is the diagonal run or movement of the paint that crosses her lower legs, and the handling of the coloration in the upper torso. Move in for close-ups of the surface. This is a visual as well as a tactile surface.

I am showing an image of approximately 18 1/2" x 28 1/2" of art with the paper being slightly larger to fit under the matting.

This is a painting using mixed media techniques on an archival, acid free cotton rag surface which has been primed to accept my materials. This piece can also be classified as an encaustic which is a painting using pigment and wax. I am using the encaustic method over my base sketch and collaged surface. I am an artist passionate for visual texture, and the combination of shape and form. Here, as in a number of my fine art pieces, I have created a unique way of making my own thin archival paper tiles. I will make a stack of them in the studio and later decide how I will place them into a piece. In, Rhyolite Recline, I have used them in the upper negative space and a few in the lower right hand corner.

These are placed and cut in after my figure has been drawn. This piece does require glass and no art work should ever be placed in direct sunlight or close to a heat source. Enjoy all the framing possibilities of "Ryolite Recline".

When you receive this piece you will feel the rich wax texture.

My love and passion is my family and my art. I continue to create and learn everyday. If I have to travel I don't take paints I take fibers, and create whimsical hats and poncias (ponchos that can be worn 5+ different ways) never with patterns but always with attitude and fun. Again, blessed that my hands work and that I can do and teach. I attached one of my many fiber pieces.
Questions are always welcome. Enjoy

Silver leaf recline

Silver leaf recline

Silver Leaf Recline" is a larger encaustic (wax and pigment) on archival/acid free stock. Here I used the same model as in "Rhyolite Recline" (in my fine art gallery listing). Three years ago, in a major east coast invitational exhibition this piece won 1st in its category, the following year my work "Remembering the 70's" was acknowledged as Best in Show. I love the coloration of her flesh. The presentation is an off white linen mat built up off the surface of the painting. The mat measures 5" top and sides with 5 1/2" bottom mat. The frame is a wooden mahogany look distressed surface. The front profile measures 1 1/4" and the projection from the wall is 1 1/2". The front also has a double row of antique gold finished beading. The frame does not overpower the piece, but allows for it to make a wonderful statement in any decor. All my Fine Art is professionally packaged for shipping.

"Lyrical Dreams" is an encaustic (wax and pigment) on archival/ acid free paper.

A bit of background, I create between 40 - 50 pieces of Fine Art a year. I exhibit widely and love what I do and welcome all questions.

The image exposed through the mat opening is 18 1/2" x 14. The matting is a camel linen 5" top and sides with a 5 3/4" bottom mat and the frame is a gorgeous dark wood with some gold. It is an old world style frame with a front profile of 2 5/8"!

I had a different piece with the same frame that I attached, but that piece is no longer available. But "Lyrical Dreams" has the glass on it and I hate photographing with all the glare marks. I will be happy to do that upon request.

Brown Robe

Brown Robe

"Brown Robe" is a mono print on acid free archival paper. This is one of my favorite techniques. The result is wonderful, and don't worry about the term "print" there is only one.

This print process is exciting. I have a wonderful press in my lower studio. I paint the image directly in oil on a plate. The paper is an acid free, archival, 100% cotton; this paper is soaked in water prior to printing.

After the paper has soaked in water the paper is wiped down to remore the excess water. The plate with the oil image to be printed with the damp paper is run through the press. The image (the oil paint) is transferred to the paper and a plate impression is left, that impression can be covered by the mat.

The result is exciting and spontaneous.

I love it. "Brown Robe" is matted and framed. The image size exposed through the mat is 8" x 6". The mat is chamois and measures a 5" top and sides with a 5 1/2" bottom measurement.

The frame is a brone/gold with a burned out aged look. The front profile measures 1 1/8".

The overall measurement of "Brown Robe" is 20 1/2" x 18. and comes ready to hang and enjoy

Fly Away Home

Fly Away Home

"Fly Away Home" , is a new series of allegorical pieces. This is a mixed media painting on archival acid free paper, 300 lb weight. This is a favorite young model and and I am combining with my square motif in the negative and positive space. The paper measures 30" x 22 1/2". I would however, mat an opening of approximately 27 1/2" x 20" . Additional images show entire sheet of paper, plus details.

The female shows a necklace with a ladybug. A symbol of good luck, but spiritually, an image which helps to guide you to find your true self. What makes you the most fulfilled, and to keep an inventory of what actually fills your heart and follow that lead. Yet there is a dead ladybug pinned to the wall.

Additional image shows one framing possibility. Price is for the art only, no mat or frame.

Crimson Line Lost

Crimson Line Lost

"Crimson Line Lost" is a delicate , quiet subtle fine art painting using the mixed media technique. Here, Ias I quite often do, I prepare my canvas with extra prime. and then dently collage with a number of papers. I follow up with an additional prime and acrylic paints to accept my imagery of the female nude figure. Here I offset her to the right hand side of a horizontal small 8 X 10 canvas, only 7/8" deep for ease in framing. I draw my figure in lightly and add my highlights and low lights with acrylic and some pencil work. I love working over the texture which always creates some challenges. I love how the negative space becomes much of the positive. The crimson linear edge and the crimson in her hair just accent the quiet mood. Enjoy on the wall, in a grouping or in a table easel.

Nude in Interior

Nude in Interior

After completing a number of larger pieces for commissions and galleries; it was so much fun to work on a smaller scale in the studio. So I did a number of small abstractions that I am loving, which are matted for super easy framing. Now here are some figurative and they are going out for the first time tonight. I can't wait to do some more. So enjoy, Nude in Interior is a mixed media acrylic on canvas board measuring 5" x 7". I matted this to fit a 11" x 13" frame and it looks super. The mat is built up so the painting will not touch the glass.

White Night Gown

White Night Gown

White Night Gown is a bit older of a piece, but special. The tone dominates in amber, as the amber helps create the quality of the figures coloration. The white night gown is layed on quickly with strokes of gesso and a few variations.

The base paper is 100% archival, acid free and I have primed it to accept my collage techniques and application of mixed materials.
I have shown the entire paper in one of the views which is the 22" x 16.5" but the amber area measures approximately 20" x 14"
This is also considered an encaustic because of the use of wax.

Enjoy, nancy

Butterfly Tattoo

My love for the visual and tactile textures are evident in this piece.

Tying Hair

Tying Hair

"Tying Hair" is a mixed media, figurative piece on archival paper. Sometimes I go through periods where I hand dye or color my paper using this method. When I use this technique I will do multiple sheets at one time and even small scraps of paper and varieties of archival papers. I color and then just move them off to the side to dry naturally.

I stack these paper for later use. When I am ready to use these papers I resoak to stretch properly for work. Sometimes they get really wrinkled or even folded. There have been times I folded them methodically into squares so that they would have a grid when dried and re-stretchered.... love playing!

Here I chose the paper and decided to draw/paint one of my models on it. I love when my models pull up their hair for the neck view. I start with a light sketch and then use a thinned gesso wash to establish mass. There is a scratch across her waist area that was just part of my paper, which I accept as we all have flaws, but beautiful imperfections.

So this could be classified as a mixed-media painting or a mixed media drawing. I have incorporated watercolor and colored pencil.

I would crop an area of approximately 19 1/2" x 16" to be exposed through the opening in a mat or frame. Enjoy all the wonderful matting and framing possibilities.
Fine art should never be in direct sun light or by a hear source. This piece does require glass.

Tiled Bath

Tiled Bath

"Tiled Bath" , when your bath is almost over and you want to continue to rest quietly in the space. My model takes pleasure in escaping into a quiet dream, the heat is still in her body from the water, but most has drained away; let these few additional minutes linger.
The tub, a tub of dreams with patterns enveloping her body. A dark wash was the last stage of this piece to harmonize the mood, but take time to move your eye through the piece. "Tiled Bath" has visual and tactile texture in every inch, but rest upon the shadow created by her upright leg and you will gain balance to this piece. Another favorite area is the left leg and foot, how I decided to end that leg!
I demonstrate the process of this piece on my blog: nancybossert.blogspot.com.

This piece does require glass. The paper measures approximately 22" x 30", but expose an area of 17" x 26" through the opening in a mat or frame. That will allow some of the piece to extend under the mat.
Most of all enjoy, surrender yourself to these quiet moments.

Check out the print options even if you want to purchase the original. Artspan offers you unique ideas on how a new piece in your collection might look framed.

Orange Nude

Orange Nude

"Orange Nude" is a figurative, female nude on stretched canvas. Coloration is a combination of red, tan, purple, orange and black linear elements. I tried to photograph this one numerous times, it is a bright piece, but I think it isn't quite as bright as it is photographing.
Canvas size measures 10" x 8" x .6" deep. The painting carries over onto the canvas sides, even though the stretcher is narrower. This painting is framed in a black floater frame.
This is an acrylic.
If print options allow, this could look fabulous even blown up larger. Check it out, it is fun to play with the print options, and I limit the number to 10 of any size available.
The overall framed size is 11 3/4" x 9 3/4" x 1 1/4"
Enjoy, nancy

Seated on Ocher

Seated on Ocher

"Seated on Ocher", is a female figurative fine art piece on archival paper. This is a mixed media piece using a paint and collage base. I choose several hues and then the application of a rich ocher paper. I will discuss this piece on my nancybossert.blogspot.com which is included in my menu on my artspan site, "my blog link".

The paper measures approximately 16" x 9 1/2". the area to expose through the opening in a mat or frame would be approximately 13" x 8 1/2".
Coloration is soft seafoam teal , rust/orange, ocher, white and black.

I would love to see a wider mat on this piece, so give it space. Play with the frame option whether you choose to purchase the original or a print option. Artspan gives you so many ideas, even the color of your wall!

Nude Head Wrap

Nude Head Wrap

"Nude Head Wrap" is a series of female nudes and semi nudes on a smaller format. These are all 8" x 10" x 5/8" deep stretched canvases. They all use a similar palette of green tones, rust, black linear, yellow/green, teal, and more.
These are easy to fame and enjoy alone or in a grouping, on the wall or on a table easel.

I enjoy the spontaneity of the nude figure with the color fractionation within the space.
Enjoy, Nancy
An additional comment is that most of these I have not carried the paint onto the sides of the canvas, so if you view the entire canvas you will see some of the white gesso canvas visible. This look I was embracing. But on this site, and to allow for prints, I copped that tiny white out. However, in my attached views I am showing you a better view of the edges. You can always contact me for more images.

Ruby

Ruby

"Ruby", is a smaller format oil painting on a wood cradled stretcher. Just painted and done using the same technique as the Red Koi. This one probably won't be ready to ship for a few weeks because of drying.
I am just moving my items into my new 900 sf studio space, but have been anxious to create. So it has been an exciting few months, but I need to work on several commissions also. follow me on instagram, I have shown some of my working space , bossertnancy
Ruby is punched with more color, but the color is still low keyed. Color mix of warms: reds, orange, ocher, sienna,and then smacked with a few pops of a lime green.
This piece has expressive strokes that can be felt as well as seen.
I will probably frame in a narrow floater frame.

If you are interested in purchasing a limited print, check out the wonderful opportunities on artspan! So many choices, wonderful pricing. No cost to just look.
