I started this year by lightening up and having a little fun with
some colorful paintings.
I've worked with layering paint to create designs before like this
or this distressed layered paint design dragonfly where I
show how to create this look using a block of wood and paint.
I used the same block painting technique on this
recycled architectural angel to give it an antique feel.
A few months ago while in bed with a cold, I watched
Carrie Schmitt Surprise Garden online video course.
It's about an hour long and well worth the $20 bucks.
It gets your mind flowing about different ways to utilize
paint layering techniques.
I started with these three.
They were painted on 16 x 16 cradled wood panels that I made.
See the video on my You Tube Channel.
I added gold metal leafing for a little sparkle.
It's fun seeing what direction the painting takes you.
Second dragonfly (sold)
I love the colors and texture in these.
This pair is made on 12 x 24 canvas. Sold individually but
they look great together. See them in my shop or check them
out on You Tube.
Lots of orange and pinks in this flower painting.
Perfect for the colorful home, a nursery or girl's room.
See it on Etsy.
Oh! I just added these adorable mini paintings to the shop too.
They are 4" x 4" canvases, include a mini wood easel and
FREE First Class shipping.
See them all under "mini paintings" section in my shop.
The perfect size for a desk, bedside, dresser or shelf and just right
for gift giving.
I can even gift wrap for you and send straight to your recipient.
Valentine's is coming up...just saying!
Thanks for taking a look.
Have a colorful day!
