The acrylic on paper painting I did a while back was not making me happy.
Too blah. Nothing to make anyone want to look at it.
So I went back with oil pastels and my fingers and made changes.
Hmmm...still missing any pop or interest.
Maybe this one is going in the trash.
I did play around with some other things - just a bit of this and that...
A pink flamingo using just one color = Permanent Alizarin Crimson.
On a scrap sheet of Arches 140# cold press paper. The seashell is a molded shell out of paper (like you use to make your own paper with a blender and a screen - I used a cookie mold and filled it with the paper pulp and let it dry).
The crow was a print I trimmed around, then added the heart (made by using texture medium in the shape of a heart, letting that dry on the paper and then painting inside it; letting that dry and cutting around it, punching a hole and adding the string).
This one may become a birthday card for my Sweetie - who has a birthday in August :)
Speaking of birthdays, I just got an order from DickBlick.com that included blank Watercolor cards, blank Printmaking cards and blank Mixed Media cards - so I can make tons of cards for birthdays coming up and for the rest of the year - and then some!
Meanwhile, my full sheet hydrangea is sitting waiting for me to finish it and I just do other things instead - can you say displacement behavior??? ha ha
