New Work Round-Up Part 4

This is a continuation of my new work round – up. See part one, part two and part three.

Much of the work I did while starting up my blog has not yet been posted. Here and there maybe, but I’d really like to get it up on the ol’ blog so I can move to the work I am doing this month. I work a little faster than I can post. And, I work work work then I post post post. I’m new to the blog arena – so bear with me – after this I should be caught up and better skilled to post while I work…ahhh. Happy Dance!

This is a series of paintings and collage on 4 x 6 cardboard pieces. Why do I paint on cardboard you ask….click here. My first group of paintings were just plain fun, part 2 and part 3 was the beginning of this 4×6 series.

This series expresses personal ideas about life around us – topics that should be talked about or stuff I just need to get off my chest. Hey, maybe it’s therapy!

Titled: “Experiences”

Size: 4 x 6 inches – pops into a frame easily! Medium: Acrylic & Mixed Media on gessoed Cardboard

Inspiration – Experiences come in many forms. And, you can turn bad times into good, if you look at them with a positive spin. Funny – no bad experiences? That’s probably pushing it, but try not to stress over every uncomfortable experience – it could turn out to be the push you needed.

The Trash – A piece of corrugated packaging, paper from the recycle bin, and another one of those blue and white pull strips like I worked into “Kidding Yourself”. Anyone know what it’s from?

"Chatty" © 2010, Jennifer Ressmann

Titled: “Chatty”

Size: 4 x 6 inches – pops into a frame easily! Medium: Acrylic & Mixed Media on gessoed Cardboard

Inspiration – One of the symptoms of Hyperglycemia can be talking. On and on, not really paying attention to the conversation, just chattering on in an excited manner. Feed me and that goes away pretty quick. Hyperclycemia has similar symptoms to Bipolar Illness and should be diagnosed properly and taken seriously in it’s own right. Eat better, eat less sugar people and educate yourself – don’t depend on the medical community to do it all for you.

There is a lot you aren’t told during your 15 minute check-up. It’s up to you – YOU! to get all the information you can. Stop your doctor and make them discuss your condition longer, answer all your questions. If they won’t make the time – find another doctor, other resources, just make sure not to give up and get the info you need. I’m pretty adamant about my health care. Remember there are many ways to treat something – drugs, surgery – not the only options. Do your research!!

The Trash – Some cut out paper left over from another project, plain paper from the recycle bin and some sewn cloth.
