My goal is to GO BIG! This is actually a fairly cheap canvas 24 x 36 on sale for 30% off at Hobby Lobby so I felt relatively safe to try something large. I used my spray paints and stencils and then took it inside and stared at it to see what it needed. Big is definitely a challenge and this is really not all that big. it is tiring to go larger because it involves moving around in all sorts of contorted positions to get the lettering and embellishments. I painted the sides black. I am still think about the "Art -rageous" show coming up so maybe I will put this in. I have to stare at it some more. And below is another Poppy.
This Poppy run is more of a Poppy explosion. These Poppies got a bit jumbled up in the excitement of my dash for the paints and I got a bit over-exuberant. I got some new Twinrocker 6x8 paper (yummy yummy!!!) so I am practicing to see if I can get up my courage to do some originals on this paper. I usually get the paper out and the sheet stares at me with those big blank white eyes and I start to do an "art start freak out". Ever had one of those? What is it about blank paper (with the most fabulous deckled edges you ever saw) that freaks me out? Oh yeah, I might mess it up! Well, anyway as Joyce Meyers always says, "Just do it afraid!"
So, we'll see if I can do it. If I don't get up the courage to use the paper then I have wasted it anyway so....go figure!!??
