Today I started working on a canvas. Not a new canvas but one that I already painted. Remember that tree picture I worked on for a friend? Yeah, I had to paint two because after getting started I noticed the large canvas wouldn't fit in my suitcase! That was smart. So, luckily I had an extra smaller canvas that worked. But, I was left with this of course...
I used some white acrylic paint as a primer until I figure out exactly what I'm doing with it. So far, I'm thinking something in a bold, beautiful red. I'm really feeling red lately... I've got so many blues and greens that I want to bust out and do something RED.
This is my progress so far and I might have something done for a post tomorrow.
I'm also painting a 12 x 12 canvas album cover for my brother and here's what I've got so far. The easiest parts are done, the center will be a challenge...
|From Wikipedia: hopefully it'll turn out close to this...|
And I finally got to smuggle one of these babies home in my suitcase from our wedding centerpieces... It adds a beautiful hint of color to the bedroom and is probably what got me started on the red kick.
I also managed to bring this little rose picture I painted sometime in high school and I can't wait to figure out what to do with it.
It's good to be back! :D
