I do have an art piece to share. I worked on this last night. Our budget now is beyond tight ( I will just mention quickly that we have a rental property and the tenants haven't paid in a while---5 months I am embarrassed to say--but they have 4 kids-- and we have been covering both mortages and it has been a nightmare---but enough of that cause it gets me all upset!) Anyway, the budget is tight right now and I didn't have a canvas to paint on. I really wanted to paint something biggish to go in the downstairs bathroom so I grabbed a cabinet door I had stowed away under my art table. It had been purchased months ago for 1 dollar. 27 x 13 inches. I gessoed it and went to town! (The tight budget has me using up things I already have so that is a bright side to this. Definitely a wake up call for me!)
I used acrylics and this neat stuff called Golden sand texture gel. The birdies were collaged on. I haven't gotten the face quite the way I want it...I need more interaction with the birds. hmmmm....something to work on.
Have a blessed day!
update: I did go back and play a bit more with the eyes, especially the left one, also I made the pupils a bit more to the bird on the left and upturned the mouth the slightest amount. I am happy now...shew!!! I knew I wouldn't be able to sleep if I didn't at least try. Isn't that silly? Yes, it is, but that is me I suppose. lol. I snapped a photo but Blogger is being stubborn and won't let me load pics now.
Nitey-nite. I am off to read....
