To Burn Without Being Consumed - next step


This crescent board painting is so warped I may never do anything with it, but I'm enjoying the process so far. A bit more paint, a little more India Ink so far.

And there's a heart in this one, too - I left it where it appeared.

Ohhhh Really reall really liking this. The warped board can be made flat when framed. This is so so good! You should be proud.

This may be my most favorite painting of yours yet. It really is fabulous, Rhonda! Great work!

I like it as is, Rhonda, and see even more possiblities with it turned upside down. Is it the full 30x40? Looks like the board is separating, that was the one thing I didn't like about the stuff, happened to me many times.

Thanks so much for your comments on this one, Barb, Suzanne, and Sandy! Nick, I flipped it to see and you may be right - I like it upside down, too...seems more like figures in the shapes. The paper is separating from the board and because of that I cut a full size down to 1/2 to try to manage it. I don't think these will be my favorites. LOVED your UTube interview and will return to watch it again - everyone who starts getting tight and fussy with their painting should watch this :)
