Art In A Residential Setting by Lisa Goesling

What better way to get a sense of how dramatic my art is than to see it in a residential setting. The clean designs grouped together create an exciting statement and you can't help but to come in for a closer look.


All Year Round by Lisa Goesling

I remember drawing these flowers this past spring. They were right outside my front door and blossoming and twisting open right before my eyes. Today is quite the opposite with winter's gray skies and chilly winds. Thanks to nature and my black clayboards,  I can enjoy spring all year round!

I have been intrigued with using Black Claybords as sculpture. They have a bit of depth to them both by their very nature and by creating dimension through line. I haven't used a jigsaw in years, but going around the Thistle was easier than I thought it would be. Can you notice that I even went around the little hairs at the top? Now I know I can achieve this technique, can't wait to apply it to my next piece of art!
