love tuesday night.....

steve and i were talking about an event later this week and he said i didn't sound too excited. and i said iwas tired & stressed and feeling buried. so he suggested i stay home tonight.

no! art night is therapy! i feel much better as a matter of fact.....

this is coming along. i think i will try the faux encaustic matte gel medium and paint combo to finish off...... this is on canvas. and "they" say not to use some of the heavier mediums on a flexible base, but what the heck- i think it will finish the piece nicely and it's not going to be crazy heavy.
this is coming along too- i like the layers of color & glazes..... i may need to do another light layer or just pick some things out... hmmm... or maybe try draping some jewelry to see how that looks....
happier with this. not great art, but fun & cheery. and we can all use cheery, can't we?

lastly- and i bravely left this at the studio instead of hauling it home only to take it back untouched next week (progress!)- another layer of 50/50 acrylic paint spattered with alcohol. the patterns are cool- they sort of look like bones in places. who knows where this will go :)

it's so good to play!

That first piece pictured is looking fabulous! The last one looks like it's got some great potential also. Can't wait to see what you end up with.
