Project 8 is well under way. I will show you how it turns out but for now .. Im'a gonna give you a little hint. It involves this beautiful, near perfect, unflavored gelatin ( is it mold or mould?) that I made.. it is hanging out in my fridge right now. This is my first time trying this one.. cant wait to see.
Those of you that know me well , know that I am not a "purse" kinda girl... I got a small wallet so I could carry it in the pocket of my hoodie. This little bag that I found last week could make me change my mind. It is so freakin cute!! Only problem is .. it doesnt really go with any if my hoodies.
A while back I had a great idea and it was to begin with a purple canvas. After I painted it I couldnt remember what that great idea was. So this week I thought I would do something with that purple canvas. This project is twofold. The other part being to photograph the progress of the project.
First of all I made a loose sketch of my new idea with pastels
Then I went looking for materials.. oops two jars of medium dried up.
Ok. Found a jar of medium. Tearing paper and attaching with acrylic matte medium
Progress buy the end of day one.
Day two.. there is always a stage in a painting that I say... what was I thinking.. this was then.
Day 4 still a mess going on. I have to really concentrate on the push and pull of warm and cool colours, bright and muted, to make my compostion work. It reminds me of painting and also of a jigsaw puzzle.
I Love the sparkle it seems to have ... so lively.. but I think I will leave more underpainting showing next time. I think covering the whole surface gives too few quiet areas.
Taa Da.. this is the finished product.. It is 16 x20 inches.. and I keep wanting to call it a painting even though it was a collage. .. hmm painted with paper.
I had a chance to play with some of the photos I took while we were in British Columbia. This is one from Robert's Creek. That's where my friend Deanna lives. Lucky girl and I am so glad she took us to see this place. I never would have known it was there. I think I am going to make this one of a series of prints to hang on my wall.
