Painting!



Okay, nothing to get too excited about, but I had this wall behind my sofa and I wanted to incorporate the bare tree limb theme that runs throughout my house with something that's purely decorative art and not art-art, you know? So, I did acrylic (hate them) paint washes on the surface to make it feel kind of like silk fabric and a bit Asian influenced and then I painted bare tree limbs. I'm pleased with the effect in the scheme of the entire room. It's not really a challenging painting--took me 30 minutes, but for its purpose, it'll do. I hope to get some down time to be able to dabble in oils again and start working on a series of my psychic visions. It will be so challenging but exciting.

  2. Thanks Becca! I can't wait to tinker with the more creative stuff. I'm itching to get some of the psychic visions out. I think I might pull out the sketch pad and sketch them up while I'm waiting to get off my butt and go get some oil paints. :-)

  3. Looks like art to me!

    That is my favorite kind of decorating...making what you need for the space.

  4. Thanks Gail;
    Yeah, I'm just hard on myself. Most of my best friends are really unbelievable artists, so I always feel like I'm dinking around, but so long as I like to look at it, it's my art.

  5. I love your painting! I have quite a fondness for trees - either bare or clothed in leaves. And a find your painting very, very nice! I would hang it in my own home - something I can't say about all the art I see or even like.

    Can't wait to see what else you have waiting to come out! :0)
