It's been one of those very long months that we all have when everything is hitting you at once.
my "net-book" stopped working needing an expensive repair, health problems, money problems, dealing with a major disappointment.... sigh.
But not all was a negative...
my friend Kim Collister was featured in
I own some of her fabulous creations & was so
inspired reading about her method for creating such artsy, encouraging tags
that i thought i'd try my hand at them.
Creating art is good therapy!
I mailed these out as a surprise gift for some
very special customers as a little
"thank you for your business".
Here are some new pieces I've done with
the palette knife!
i discovered that
i love painting with the knives
and can't wait to do more!!
|Abstract in Blue & Brown|
|Abstract Knife Painting|
|Dreaming of Spring|
for something completely different...
the IA team had a "Mandalas" challenge
a few weeks ago
that i couldn't post due to the pc trouble
so here are my belated & most feeble attempts
Oh!! I almost forgot to tell you,
though you probably have guessed,
i have a new laptop thanks to my hubby
it's my early Christmas and birthday gift!
Hopefully i will catch up with the IA challenges
and show you what i've been doing in my journal
but that will have to wait till later.
Diane, your mandalas are lovely. I painted one from my friends mandala coloring book. Good fun!ReplyDelete
You have certainly been busy. Those tags look great. You are very good with the palette knife art too - hope you sell lots of them.ReplyDelete
Great paintings - love the expressive application of paint. I like the oranges in the first and the flickering light in the third and all that colour contrast in the last!ReplyDelete
Nice works done with painting knives, Diane. I found you on the Blogland site. Have you seen my ideas for art teachers? On Mixed Media Manic.blogspot.com.ReplyDelete
I am so honored you mentioned me and your tags are just AMAZING! I love your paintings, painting with knives is something I have not tried yet. Yours however, are very impressive along with your mandalas which I totally can not seem to do. I love looking at them and I am completely inspired by them, but when it comes to trying to do one, I suddenly find other things I need to get done! LOL
Always great to hear from you!!!
