About the Artist

Mari Newman

For many years I have painted rejected fence posts to recycle them and put them in gardens for landscape decorations. The paintings I do this year are done in oils and acrylic mixed together on the canvas. They are mixed media. I take no stick parchment and use acrylic paint the different shapes and colors. Then when dry I peel the subject matter off the parchment, and then lay it on the canvas that has an oil painting background and lay it on the canvas to give it a three dimensional effect. With the coming of Spring I was thinking of flower gardens for three of the fence posts and one picture I used crushed pop cans and some of them I used paper or dried flowers or painted my own flowers. The acrylic skins after they're dry I apply to the canvas with the oil painted background. I use alot of found objects for my paintings.
