Dishrag it Ain't!

Nashville artist Kathryn Dettwiller is this week's guest blogger for the Artist as Collector series.
Mixed media

This piece is a favorite of mine by Sally Mankus of Shalimar, FL.

Sally uses a photographic emulsion on a resin-based medium to create these works. Sometimes she prints on pot lids and on cookie sheets. 

It is positioned on a long wall in our home in Florida, where it is visible from the kitchen/gathering area. Some visitors fail to see the woman’s face at first and they wonder why I have a dishrag pinned up on the living room wall.  Makes me smile.

Kathryn Dettwiller works primarily in encaustic in her paintings and monoprints. She also finds herself going "off the page" to create mixed media assemblages.
