Yesterday I was still working in my old studio doing some little repairs to paintwork , a little furniture shifting but mostly painting new things on old canvases to brighten up and bring some life back to the space . It is now looking more like an artist lived here….and hopefully will appeal to another artist. ( photos included..very reasonable price)
Yesterday’s project work was another painting on glass. This time I chose a photo I liked from a walk I had been on with eevi earlier this year. I loved the colours and the light and the crazy olive tree. I must buy purple paint though, as the flowers were much more vivid in real life but I couldn’t get the intensity with the colours I had…..which are actually old ones that I am using up. Am finding it very liberating painting with old paint ( and white wall paint) on pieces of wood, or glass used in a frame, or canvas where I have painted over old paintings.
Apart from the lack of purple I am pleased with my second painting on glass and it’s now back in its frame and decorating my living room.
I was very productive yesterday and also painted a giant tomato and a special envelope. I was going to paint a bar of chocolate….but I ate it. Needed the energy.
Eevi meantime was painting roses…in a way. As she had no roses she painted leaves to look like roses.
She has been very busy this month also and is working her way towards completing 27 local scenes..
