Today, I want to play catch up with images for you. It really gets to me when I do not have photographs to show you, so hear are a few to get things going on this blog again. Believe me, this is just blabbering....
This is a panel I painted with some of Golden's Micaceous Iron Oxide. That is all I have done...painted it. I like the reflective quality of this product and am sure I will feel inspired once I have the opportunity to spend time in my studio. Have you ever used this product? Do you like it? How did you use it?
What is this? It is the bottom of a cardboard soup cup (I used a double because the soup was so hot) I used to mix some paint for a new canvas. I just liked the way it looked and took a photo. Do you do things like that? Take photos of odd things which just strike you as interesting.
This is the canvas I was painting when I left my studio and mixed the above paint for. Over the last days, I have been thinking about what I might do with this one... Let's see if it works.
This is one of those panels I was testing on earlier. I don't think this is fun, but here is what you see, so far...acrylic paint, rice paper, gauze I used to paint some texture on another canvas, a blob of dried acrylic paint and some metal foil.
This is the metal foil a friend of mine sent me from Germany. See the jar on the right? That is the one I like the most. I seem to have a difficult time using metal foil, but I still like to play with it. Play is good, right?
So this is basically what I have for you today. I promise to do better tomorrow...really I do.
I want to thank you all for being so patient and kind with me over the last few days. My father is doing really, really well and all of my family thanks you all for your well wishes which worked perfectly. I am so humbled by the kindness of all of the artists who come here to comment and send me emails. You all are a part of a rare breed of people, and I am honored to call you friends.
Thank You So Much!
