Venetian Pool


Blocked in the shady part of the pool and practicing colorways for the sunny side. I have floated in my own pool several times this week and watched the light play on the surface and on the pool floor. So amazing and just hope I can catch some light in my painting.

tag sale haul














Found some really cool stuff at a tag sale today. So excited to find the brand new "vintage" liquitex paint brushes. I got them all for 6 bucks. Then the art box was such a treasure! My husband found it in a dusty corner, it is full of interesting charcoal. So glad to have it to replace the one I lost in the flood so many years ago.

You can see the guy was a woodworker so I bought some of his work, my husband picked up some tools, but I'm the one that cleaned up and got the best deals today.

It was a great sale and we joked all evening about the questionable art pictures in one bedroom. He not only had a wood shop he also had a passion for painting pussies. Ha. I told my husband that I wished I had dared him to go ask the ladies how much was the pussy painting going for. hahahahaha. They were all sitting in the living room with a straight face so we didn't laugh until on our way home. I stated that I thought it was porn and my husband defended him and said it was art...hmmm. Art is always in the eye of the beholder.

burnt

It was so pretty this morning I decided to try a technique I read about on pinterest, burning tins. Got myself set up and threw them in the flames. I was supposed to wait and put them on the hot coals but got excited so moved them to the side after a bit and most are really cool.

Scared little Riki, he was on the other side of the pool thinking of jumping in. He thought I was burning the backyard down.











You can see Maxine's friend's light in this picture. Just used rub-n-buff gold on a battery powered tea light.

Full Buck Thunder Moon Gelli Print


Only got one good print the other night but it turned out really cool after I added inktense in some areas and then outlined all the colors with my black stabilo pencil. I like it.

halo moon

Caught a shot of the halo moon last night. Looked like a portal.



Brought little miss sunshine back in the house after she was done distressing. I changed her face, gave her some operator plugs for arms. I always loved those old switchboards, my ex mother in law ran one with quite a flair.

She had two different sets of boobs but looks better without, who knew? She crashed into Riki today so he doesn't like her one bit.

Bob Dylan - Baby Please Dont Go

8x8 journal


The page on the left was so messed up I just tore some book paper and glued it down. Scraped blue neon craft paint and then hit it with a little colorburst! That stuff is fun! I like the butterfly page.

Altered desk chair












A few shots of the studio this evening. I redid the lace in the Lucille chair. If I'm not careful I will destroy the fabric redoing the damn thing. So the buttons are on but they are crooked. Please let me leave it alone!

I added the spring for a long neck to my Chelsea Rose can. Worked in the journal for some play instead of all work.
Placed my mandala's above the window the other day. Peace out.
