Well, as Fall quickly approaches so does the build up to Fall Art Shows. I am now in a scurry to get artwork finished, photos printed and packaged and sewing completed.
I know I am not going to get everything done that I had planned but I think I am on track for most.
Here are some canvases prepped and really for some paint and frames waiting for photos :)
On the table piles of packaged photos (still have a lot more to do) and artwork with a background color but no subject as yet!
A print of one of my larger pieces of art, matted, foam core backed and packaged in a clear sleeve, these seem to be a popular and affordable option these days to buying larger original art for a lot of people :)
What to work on next???????
Then I have to decide which larger Original pieces I will finish and can I afford to get them framed? Oh dilemma!
Here is a larger piece I have been working on for a while. It is a 4' x 5' canvas. It has been a long time in the making because our family had to eat all the candy and open all the Christmas Crackers before I had the materials to create this piece. (He! He!) I have had fun making it (also, lots of fun eating the candy etc.) it is still a work in progress maybe it will be ready for a show next Summer??????
It took a long time to glue every one of those pieces on to the canvas and yes, I did wash the candy wrappers :) I have a few more spaces to fill in and then a few more layers of paint before I will feel it is finished but I wanted to show you one of my larger pieces in process. The final product could look very different or not depending on the process I decide to go with but that to me is the adventure of art :)
So that is a bit of what I have been up to and will be for the next few weeks, I keep thinking I have it all organised, so fingers crossed it will all come together in the end. :)
Happy Painting/Creating! :) T.
