‘Bridge to New Beginnings’ is a textured, mixed media piece. Sand was the primary texture medium used to create the unusual surface texture Tracie Eaton was looking for. Using acrylic paints, Tracie has created a blue/grey toned bridge that when seen, looks cold, icy and onerous to cross. Tracie used white sand particles, flaked plastic, glitter and pigment powder to create this effect. ‘Bridge to New Beginnings’ is a painting that while structured in nature still holds the essence of Tracie’s painting style.
