Creative Heart Monday - Sea of Flowers



Happy Creative Heart Monday!

I have accumulated quite a few watercolors over the past year.  On top of everything that I already had, I just had to buy the new Jane Davenport waters.  They are so bright and beautiful.  In this painting, I'm using all of my different brands together.  I just went nuts making lots and lots of watercolor blobs, hoping that they would look like flowers in the end.

Here we go.......

How to Make a Wooden Bunting



I needed a banner for my new art fair tent, so I figured that I would make one.  I found some, cute, wooden flags at the craft store and I already had the rest of the supplies.

Here's my tent.  I've set it up in my front yard so that I can figure out how I'm going to arrange the displays and hang my paintings.



Supplies

Wooden flags
8" X 10" Gel Press plate
Acrylic Craft Paint
Miscellaneous Stencils
Texture Plates
Regular Brayer
Textured Brayer
Hand-cut circle masks
Black Oil Pastel
Acrylic spray sealer
Twine


I hung the bunting on my fireplace so that I could take these pictures.  I haven't quite figured out how I'm going to attach it to my tent yet.









I started a new Patreon page - CeeCeeART.  I would love for you to check it out.  I will be doing new project, exclusively on the Patreon page.  Depending on the, chosen, level, there will be one or two larger projects, and several mini-projects each month, as well as, other gifts.

I hope that you're having a great weekend!

PEACE!

Inspiration from the Greats - Jackson Pollock



Inspiration from the GREATS!

Welcome to our first Inspiration from the Greats video.  This month we are being inspired by Jackson Pollock - originator of American Abstract Expressionism!

This video is, primarily in "real time".  I've tried my best to use his techniques.  Of course, I don't believe that he was using small bottles of craft paint.  He used large cans of paints!  He also created very large paintings (which I would like to do someday).

Since this is going to be a monthly thing (we'll focus on a different artist each month), I created a Facebook Group where we can share our painting inspired by the artist of the month.  I would love to see your paintings inspired by Jackson Pollock!!

Here we go...............








I hope that you enjoyed the video and would love to here your comments.  Join the Facebook Group!!

PEACE!
