The other day I posted my first attempt at a painting using Blick acrylics. It didn’t come out like I expected, so I sent the experts at Blick art an email asking for their advice. They were kind enough to email back some tips, which I tried, and I could not be more tickled with the results.
It has been ages since I’ve posted any new artwork. Not only that, but it has been ages since I’ve finished one. As are many of my pieces, this is a watercolor abstract.
This week, for the first time in a while, I found myself dragging out some paint and a fresh canvas. As is my favorite way to fly, I just let it rip and here’s what I ended up with. I’m pretty sure it’s finished, but I’ll leave it on the easel for a few days to see if it asks for anything more.
I’ve still been hard at work on writing projects. Lately though, I’ve been taking out time to do some “just because” things too. Some have turned out nicely, others not so much. No matter what, I had a good time playing around. Local veggies are really starting to come in and I’ve been stocking the freezer with some of the early crops. Plus, I’ve been in the mood to knit washcloths lately for some odd reason but hey why fight it. I even made some time for a few very quick art projects and to get outside-just to make my heart happy. Below are a few pics of some of the stuff I’ve done this week.
For the first time in weeks, I got a wild hair and started slinging paint. It isn’t quite done yet, but alas it’s time to stop for now. It’s probably a good thing as it needs to dry a bit anyway.
