While things have been crazy around here, I have been able to get into the studio a little bit. You all have been so patient with me and I thank you. Hopefully by the end of the weekend, I will have visited you and left a comment on your blog. At least that is one of my weekend goals.
As I have shared before most of my paintings are very time consuming and this one is no different. I used acrylics and a frottage technique with rice paper to get some of this texture. I applied layers clear glaze. Then for several layers I used an eye dropper and squirted acrylic ink over the clear glazing, sprinkled that with pearl powder and placed waxed paper over it...and squished everything together and pressed it all down with my hands. When I was ready, I lifted the waxed paper. This is 12" x 16".
You will still have to bear with me for a little while, but I promise I will get there. I hope all is well with everyone and I do plan on visiting you very soon.
Have a Beautiful Day! Now, back to the studio!
