|TWO PEARS watercolor and acrylic about 5x5"|
The above 2 paintings were originally one wide painting. I painted the pears and the cup about a year ago and pulled it out of my drawer last week, finished it, then cut it in half. The background is done with acrylic and a hand carved linoleum block. I put clear contact paper over the painting and cut the background off with a razor blade (carefully) and painted and stamped . This is a technique I learned from Anne Bagby. I also decorated a bunch of paper to use in collage or handmade books.
Either nobody came here in the last couple of weeks or if they did the didn't want my little gouache painting.... not one comment or email. I even gave an extra week for the offer of a gift of the little painting. I realize I don't get many people coming here, and I haven't been conversing much on other blogs lately, but still, its kind of embarrassing. I thought about offering it again, maybe putting the offer in the title, or maybe offering another painting, or even lie and say I had lots of emails and gave to so and so and go burn the painting, or maybe delete the whole post. I think I'll just go forward and forget the whole incident. No one will probably read this anyway so its forgotten.
Well, going forward. I've been setting up a website, finally. Maybe when I get that done, I'll stop putting anything here on this blog and go back to just the watercolor postcard one.
