So today is Saturday, April 2, but as I'm writing this part right now, it's early Friday morning, April 1. I'm at my kitchen table with the girls enjoying my cup of Peet's coffee. And I'm looking out of my picture window and admiring the beautiful white carpet on the ground from the big fluffy snowflakes that are falling down--Ahhh--Spring--what a beautiful Season!!
Okay.....whatever....on to the blog post--
I've put the She-art on hold for a while and decided to do some Diane-art
Diane-art is a lot different than She-art. It's all about different shapes and patterns and a pretty much planned design. It's definitely more time consuming, but once I figure out what I'm going to do, I really enjoy the process. And this is on a 16 x 20 canvas. I haven't worked on this size in a while--these larger sizes always intimidate me a bit.
I used some of my painted papers, some speciality papers from paperarts.com, and also artists' papers from Somerset Studio (I finally broke down and bought a subscription, and they sent me a pack of their papers). And I even used some corrugated cardboard that I just painted--I love this stuff to use as a collage element.
And Diane-art usually will have mirrored designs on all sides (but not always)
Sooner or later--everyone has to do their laundry. But don't worry, they'll be popping up again--if not here, then somewhere in Blogland.
And another giveaway --Becky Bowman's--she's giving away this original painting on an 11 x 14 canvas--
I LOVE her whimsy style!! Make sure to enter your name!
So I'm finishing my post, and it's now early Saturday afternoon. The snow is gone, the sun is out, and it's a nice 'warm' temperature of 40 degrees. NOW.....were talkin Spring!!
