My morning in the studio

I took the day off from work today and spent the morning at the studio. I am happy that the heater is working (somewhat); the last few times I went in, it was pretty cold and hard to do art. I love having a space so close to Casse-Croute Bakery. The warm croissant and coffee was the perfect answer to the cold temp.

Lately, I have been experimenting with the poured paint medium. I am not quite sure if I am liking this process or not. There’s a good deal of giving up control and the mess is a bit more then I am comfortable with (and I like to be messy).

For this experiment, I placed the pouring medium directly on the wood block that I first painted and then added my paint into the medium. I tried to not move the board – I just wanted to see what gravity did to the paint colors. I am not sure what it will look like when it dries (another downside to this process, IMHO). I like more instant gratification!
