Rain/Snow/Rain and more snow

So it's been indoor weather long enough now.  On my last walk I saw a few things trying to bloom. 

After finishing my closet door flower doodles I continued the idea on to some canvas.  I've got one more primed and just waiting for that touch of color. 

I've been experimenting with layers of paint on the canvas a little different then I've done before and I really like the outcome.  It's a layer of splashes of color with a white wash over the entire canvas then lifting paint with a sheet of wax paper.  Wish I could figure how to do a whole wall like this. 

Here's a pic of the canvas before the flowers were added.

Fun project, this is the only time of year I get to play, soon the art fair season will get started and no time. 

Go do something creative.



It's March Already

I finally got some motivation.  One day looking at the coat closet at the end of the hall by the living room, I decided it looked like a blank canvas and need some color.  So I started with a white primer coat, then some random dabs of colors.  Then it was time for some doodling.  Not my usual but something I'd seen on Pinterest.

With my comfortable pen in hand I started, what fun.  I spent 4 days working on the doors then felt it need to be let loose, and continued onto the wall.  

When I thought I was done, it just didn't feel right.  So I looked at it for a couple of days, up close and from across the room and decided it was the wall doodles that was just to much so I painted over it.  Now it feels right and I can call it finished.    
It was a fun project, very intuitive.  And helped past the windy days that were not pleasant for walking outside.  
Spring is coming, I see the some daffodils, crocus and hyacinths popping up.  
Stay warm.  
Thanks for visiting.
