The Delusional Artist

My name is Lillian R. Nelson, the Delusional Artist.  I create 2D & 3D paintings on puzzle-pieced wood from primarily recycled pieces of lumber I find lying around. The painting process is similar to watercolor, yet with more nuances and challenges that are exciting, and, at times, frustrating. The use of the wood's original color also gives each painting an intimate feel, as if the dreamlike subjects cannot be wholly unreal since they are embedded in the natural grains of the wood. Painting on wood is more of a dance, where the it is more than just a canvas, but your partner.  I  call myself "delusional" because it at once keeps me more grounded with what I create, but also allows me to remain a dreamer.
