Canvas













It's been ages since I last shared canvas pieces on this blog, so I thought I'd play catch up.

Watercolor is usually my medium of choice, but occasionally I'll have the urge to pull down my box of acrylic paint and take to a canvas. The pieces above are pieces I've done in the last three or four months that haven't been gifted/given away. Actually, the first two pieces are oil, and the rest are acrylic. Oil is wonderful for texture, but sometimes I really just can't stomach the smell. Acrylic can be fussy sometimes, but I've been working on a couple of different methods that I'm really enjoying.

When I wanted to go to art school, I spent so much time trying and failing to produce acrylic pieces that I could be proud of. In case you didn't know about the art school thing, it didn't work out, but I think I'm doing pretty okay anyway, at least artistically. I'm proud of these pieces, and it's a nice feeling. I hope you've done something recently that you're proud of.




I've been styling sets with Yoins on Polyvore. You can check that out here.
