The Long Weekend

I was left alone this weekend, home alone for the first time in a long while, with just one mission...to create art.

Ok I wanted to clean the house too but mostly, create art.

The first three pieces are on wood, burnt and beaten, layered with thin coats of paint and then pencil drawings over the top. The white pieces were then glazed with a crackle medium.























The following two are sketches on paper which was stained with both tea and coffee. They smell pretty good too!






















And the next tree in the series I'm working on, it's a fairly large piece in oils.






















I'm working on three other large pieces right now too, but they aren't in any condition to share right now...stay tuned for more.

I think the tree is my favorite, but dang, it is hard to pick, especially when you can't see them in person! I am so tickled that you are making time for art, the world will be better for it! Love you!
