"Frog Prince" 8x10 acrylic on canvas
I am happy to announce that yesterday's issues with blogger have been resolved - yay! (Not only was I unable to upload photos, I couldn't do anything about font or font size... all I could do was type... aaargh!)
This is yesterday's painting. It was inspired by Nutty's Drawing Lab challenge and was also my response to Whimsical Wednesday.
When I decided to create a frog prince I thought, "Great - I have just the stamp for that!" I had cut some lips for my Hogs and Kisses piece back in August. Well, when I went to look for my lips I couldn't find them anywhere. (This 30 in 30 for 30 project is really taking it's toll on the organization of my studio!) Since I had my heart set on using a stamp for the lips I decided to cut another one...
When Bob and I were dating he told me his father worked for a foam company. He still laughs at my reaction... apparently I looked as if I had just won the lottery! Well, as a girl who cuts her own stamps, I guess I kind of did!
"Grow Love" 9 13/16x10 5/16 mixed media on wood
Today's painting is another wood burning with gesso, acrylics, watercolor crayons and watercolor pencils. You may have noticed the strange measurements of this painting... Bob is making new kitchen cabinet doors and this painting was created on one of the misfits. If you look where the check pattern is, it actually has dimension because he had used a router to create grooves.
Because of it's strange dimensions, the whole painting does not fit in the scanner all at once so I photographed it. I will be scanning it and piecing it together in photoshop, but that is a project for another day because it is a big night in the Dudish household - "A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving" is on tonight!
Thank you for your continued encouragement during this project!... Please be sure to stop by the Creative Every Day blog to see more day 18 art.
