Hi there. I've got a new painting to show you! Just finished the final little details on it today. It has many of my favorite things...texture, a peacock feather... which of course includes peacock colors, copper (well actually a combo of copper and soft brass), and lots of texture (yes, I know I said it twice!).
There are SO many layers on here! Heavy gel medium, which I drew into when wet, then layer after layer of paint and glazes.
It is painted on a gallery wrapped 9 x 12 inch canvas.
And speaking of gallery, that's why I've been so quiet around here. This painting and many others you've seen here, along with others that are in progress, will be on their way to hang (and hopefully sell) in an art gallery soon! I'm so excited! And I will also be working on getting my jewelry AND photography there too! What a dream come true! More details to come...
I finally decided to listen to what it wanted.
To be an artist is to be brave so...I had to be brave and do this...
paint most of it out with Titan Buff (off white) and start the new layers! Eek! But I was excited to take that step because I knew that's where it needed to go. Things go a lot smoother and are a lot more fun when I listen to the art and my own intuition.
Try to do the same for yourself...be brave and listen.
