Title: With a Twinkle in Her Eye

Artist: Carmela Martin

Materials: Bass is 3ft x 1.5ft and made of .5in Kleer (PVC). Several layers of acrylic paint, mica flakes, metallic paint.

Artist's Description: My Bass is clearly a classy lady with her twinkly eye and coral ornamentation. She decided to abandon the cold waters of New England for the warm seas of the tropics. In order to help her blend in, I have layered several different shades of blues and greens in a process I developed to give a kind of marbleized effect. The twinkle in her eye is achieved with mica flakes and metallic silver paint. She hopes someone will adopt her and take her home. Will it be you?


About the Artist: I am an artist member of the North Shore Arts Association, the Rockport Art Association and Museum, and a member of the Experimental Group of RAA. I am also an artist member of the National Association of Women Artists and its Massachusetts chapter. In addition, I have also exhibited work with the Newburyport Art Association, Marblehead Art Association, Endicott College, the Harlem School of the Arts, Front Porch Gallery of Wellfleet, and the pastel societies of both New Hampshire and Cape Cod. My paintings are in private and corporate collections in the U.S. and abroad.
