New Art ~ Technicolor Dream

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.


Gotta Learn The Secret…

This week I’m trying a new brand of paint. Below is the first piece I’ve done using it. All I can say is that experimentation is needed. ┬áThese don’t seem to want to blend with one another as well as what I’m used to. Just gotta keep playing with the mixture until I find the key to working with these. I’m sure it’ll come. You know what they say about practice *wink*.


Creative Work This Week

I’ve had a pretty creative week, which is something that hasn’t happened in a while. Things have been so busy otherwise over the last several months ┬áthat my visual creative practice had fallen by wayside. It feels good to have two finished projects to share with all of you.

This week I decided to experiment with a new painting technique. For a first run, I’m pretty happy with the result. I’ll be playing with this method more. It’s fun and messy. What else can a girl ask for? Other other than the painting, I finished my first scarf for the homeless for this year. Photos of both projects are below.


New Art~ 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.
