Happy Thanksgiving to all of you. We got our first freeze of the year last night. Woke up to frosty white, it was so pretty.
Two things this week. 1, I was lucky enough to receive a wonderful book on Liqutex products. There is some history about acrylic paints that I didn't know so I thought I would share the information with you.
I will be posting every Sunday about acrylics and mediums.
2, Last week the owner of Nature Foot Step commented that my sculpted pieces looked heavy. I guess I should tell you that along with cement I use some other secrete ingredients in my sculpt so they are actually quite light. The largest piece only weighs 5lbs. I am not ready to divulge my process or complete ingredients yet (sorry) but the main ingredient is cement.
A big thanks to Eva and Kristen who host Paint Party Friday. I wait all week to see who has created what. I am so inspired by all of the artists who show their art.
This week I have a piece of "Car Art"
Yes I draw in the car and NO our roads in Oregon suck!!!! So lots of mistakes and erasing. LOL
I don't do hair. I think this winter I will study how to draw and paint hair.
This is a used canvas that I painted sometime ago and decided it was time to paint over it.
The shinny parts are marbled red gold leaf.
This is my latest sculpt. Now I will tell you that the base of this are stacked gourd tops. I think it has an oriental appeal.
It is 17" tall and 6" at the widest part. Weighs in at 2 lb. and is very stable.
Just so you know how much they weigh.
19x20x6x with out the curls. 5lbs
12x10x6 with out the curls. Weighs 2 lbs
17x9x4 with out the curls and weighs about 2 lbs
Hope you enjoyed the show and a wonderful weekend.
Honor and integrity in art, in life.
