Today was an abstract day. Abstracts with a palette knife. I worked on four small pieces, 5 x 7 Heavy Yupo, 144lb. I really like the heavy Yupo. It does not buckle, even under thick layers of acrylic. I did not tape the sheet down, but it did not warp. Very nice!
I’m still undecided about this one. So much so, that I took to cropping it in Photoshop. The colors are muted, maybe that is what bothers me. Not sure. I do really like the colors. Happy for the practice,
think it would help to use a thick medium with the color. These are craft paints, and some a thicker than others. I need MORE palette knife practice. I like the 2nd and 4th images best. What do you think?
Weather is giving us spectacular views. I have art to post, a couple of pieces. They need to be scanned though, so I thought I’d share these views I have hoarded. Roughly a week’s worth.
I mentioned before the Liberate Your Art postcard exchange has been cancelled this year. Kat Sloma does such a fabulous job of hosting the swap. Life has other wonderful plans for Kat, and the time intensive event had to be crossed of her to do list.
I plan to send out cards to those of you that swapped with me last year. I have about 25 on the list. There is no obligation for anyone to swap with me in return. If you think you would like to, contact me by email, or here in a comment.
I thought it would be fun to send a card to Kat as well, and decorate the envelope as we often do for her. Should be a nice surprise don’t you think.
Jacinta Moore posted on Instagram that she would like to swap this year, and a MINILYA has begun. Reach out to her if you would like to add your name. Someone asked if they could be handmade cards. I think that would be a fun change to include both handmade, and printed cards.
I am thinking of sending my cards out mid to late March. They will be printed. I send cards out to family and friends, and internet friends that don’t take part in LYA. Too many to make by hand at once.
