Even with having my grandson home last week, I managed to do some painting. This was done in a Van Gogh mood (LOL - I have always loved Van Gogh). I was really just playing around and when I was finished, voila, I liked it! Sometimes when there is no pressure I do my best work. Pressure tends to stifle my creativity. This actually inspired me to paint a much bigger version of the same subject (this is 5x7) which I hope to put up in a day or so. I had lots of fun with acrylic paint, including bronze metallic, and PanPastels in gold and silver. I also swirled silver paint in the night sky. I used Matisse background paint (China Red) for the boat. These are marvelous paints - I love to use them under my paintings as well - I did that with the larger painting. Have put this up for sale in my ETSY shop.
Thanks for visiting - I hope you enjoyed the holidays last week - Easter or Passover, whichever you celebrate. Will be linking to Paint Party Friday on Friday. It's hosted by the fabulous team of Kristin and Eva and it is just like bringing a big ol' art gallery into your home. Go and browse or submit your own work - no experience required. Have a blessed and art filled day.
