  • "They've All Gone Plum Crazy" is a watercolor "poured painting".  This is a view inside my whiskey barrel filled with striped petunias.  A sparse spot shows a young plant with no bloom and a butterfly laying low.   
  • Kelli Lien updated the Artwork "Butterfly Reunion"
    "Butterfly Reunion" began as a watercolor underpainting of a blue sky.  Butterfly shapes were cut out of magazine cuttings and randomly placed.  
  • Kelli Lien updated the Artwork "Tutti Fruitti"
    "Tutti Fruitti" began as a watercolor underpainting using cut out bits of waxed paper and a little twist of gauze.   Real leaves were used to form the leaf shapes.  Painted pieces of rice paper were used as well as pieces of fine art decorative papers.  Watercolor was used to make the darks.   
  • Kelli Lien updated the Artwork "Pumpkin Patch"
    This mixed media piece began with a watercolor underpainting and collage elements were added, including fine art decorative papers, decorative napkins, painted gauze, painted unryu, and magazine cuttings.  This piece has a navy colored mat and is in a vintage frame made from a 100 year old barn in northern Minnesota.  
  • Kelli Lien updated the Artwork "Amaryllis Redux"
    I painted this for my mother and used the image to make holiday cards for her to send friends and family.  Initially, I painted it using pinks.  She did not like the cards.  I never framed the painting.  Years later, I reworked the painting and changed all the colors to red and burgundy.  It is now professionally framed.  It is triple matted.  The main mat is a warm white.  The liners are green and burgundy. The frame is off white and has a gold accent.  
  • Kelli Lien updated the Artwork "Trees I"
        This was created during my initial attempt at learning how to manipulate alcohol inks. It is professionally framed with a  dark brown suede mat and a brown frame with bronze like accents.    It can be found at Wings 'n Willows Art Gallery & Custom Framing in Grand Rapids, MN
