Lately I have been doing a little stretching, art wise. I began by making my honey a birthday canvas , rather than a birthday card, and I had so much fun with that, I just kept going. It’s interesting how each medium I work with seems to inspire a different sort of artistic expression. Whether I am working on watercolor paper, my Donna Downey art journal or even Dyan Reavely’s art journal. Or even just scrapbooking. They all have a different feel.
So, below are just a couple of canvases I have been working on lately. I have another one I did yesterday that I will post as soon as I am able.
This one is my version of a piece I saw hanging at the doctor’s office the other day. I wanted to take a pic of that one, but I didn’t want to be weird (er than usual).
This one started as pseudo scrapbook page in black and pink which I adhered to the canvas and immediately detested. So of course my only choice was to cover it with gesso, tissue paper and a bottom
layer of paint before something decent started to emerge. And yay!! I am really pleased with it now.
BTW , having a WordPress app on my phone is great, because I can blog in bed. Nice!
Hope you have a day full of good surprises.
