Description Little Soul series found object 'mosaic.' About all things old fashioned and the memories they provide. Even though Burt's Bees was founded in 1984, the art on it connotes an earlier time. The gem-like plastic pieces across the top were made by my mother-in-law back in the early 1950s while she was in school. The food coloring bottles were a staple when I was a child, as were those old yellowish plugs (which to me looks like a skirt with two spindly legs). The fake red berries were always decorating women's hats, too.Includes: cuticle cream cap, plug, plastic bottle with food coloring, beads, beach glass, shells, button, artificial berries
Sondra Sula, Fort Bragg, CA Member Since June 2008 Artist Statement Painting is my first love - I've been influenced by German Expressionism and Fauvism. Emotion through the use of color is very important to me. I adore extreme, brilliant color and have a preference for figurative work. I've been painting for many years, have been in over 40 shows, and have had previous representation with galleries in Chicago and Santa Fe. I am now with a gallery in Elk, California.
I work in several forms of art including photography, oil pastel and "Little Souls" which are found-object mosaic-like pieces, that serve as small framed shrines. Creativity is a gift to be enjoyed by those who create and those who observe - ENJOY!
Make sure to visit all of my galleries. I'll be adding new work on a regular basis. Thank you for visiting!
