About Me

My photo
I am a Colorado native, so I grew up loving the natural environment and the wild Rocky Mountains. Until recently, I always considered myself a watercolor artist and felt confined to that little “box” I put myself in. On a quest for discovery and healing, I took a workshop in mixed media techniques. Since that day, I’ve been obsessed – I’ve found a new and different way to express myself and my emotions. I’m on a constant quest to find unusual and discarded “things” to use in my paintings. I’ve used everything from plaster, twine, metal, foil, and even broken windshield glass. It all somehow becomes symbolic in my paintings and signifies a feeling or emotion. Thanks for joining me on this journey and this adventure we call life and art!

Original Mixed Media Art, Time's a Tickin', by International Mixed Media Artist, Donna L. Martin

Time's a Tickin'
This original mixed media piece symbolizes the passage of time in our lives. The round metal piece in the center represents the center of our lives. From there, at times, we spend so much time worrying about things that never come to pass. This is represented by the spirals and gears bursting from the center. The pieces of glass are glimpses of time we have wasted and can't get back. This was a good reminder for me to live in each present moment. Time is a gift we are given and it passes quickly. It is constructed with paint, molding paste, gears, metal, and glass. It is finished with a shiny epoxy-resin coating, it comes to you ready to hang.

This piece measures 11X14X1 and is available for purchase.
Price is $145 and shipping is $10 within the US.
