|"Blaze of Glory", mixed media on canvas, 18" x 24"|
Coulter describes her process this way: I usually have some theme or inspiration in my mind before beginning a piece, and then being by gluing, with an archival glue, some remnants from my daily life - receipt from a restaurant, a page torn from an old book, etc and let it dry. Then I start with a few charcoal pencil lines to lightly sketch in a landscape scene. This gives me a start but no telling where the painting will go from there. I then begin putting paint on, I add a few drips, I add more paper, more paint, and on it goes! I have been very pleased with the results I’ve achieved - I find the whole process is encouraging, creative, and inspiring!
