Paint Party #37

Check out all the wonderful artists on paint party Friday!
I have missed a few, still I've been painting quite a bit.
Finally a painting dear daughter loved and asked me not to change a thing!!



Finished large acrylic
" Whimsy Wonder"
If only I could find bed sheets with a pattern like this.... I'd be in my glory
covered in color!! I understand these vibrant colors would not appeal
to the beige people! I respect that!! Just let me have my color
and I'll be happy!

I Like to be able to place my paintings in any directions on the wall for a completely different look.

Below is this painting in the early stages. I mixed  color with silver for a metallic look. 
It evolved and changed so much during the creative process!
   I painted out the stems which I despised. Funny how you start one way and end another. This painting is nothing of how I originally imagined it!
                               
Below is " My little Fairy" 
It's full of texture  because I painted over a  canvas (see here
I was so disappointed in!


My daughter hates it, that's a swear word in our house  too!!  It creeps her out so much she  picked it up and removed it from sight! I on the other hand love her but have agreed to change the eyes to see if that makes a difference! The eyes are that shape because there is a small chunk of texture that I formed the eye around! Oh well you win some and you lose some.... Happy Thanksgiving Weekend to my American friends, being Canadian we celebrate in October!

I hate to disagree with your daughter, but I LOVE your little fairy--this is the way she is--that's what I love!!
And your other painting-love, love, love!

If you could turn the purple painting into fabric, I would cover a comfy armchair with it! It would be so wonderful to cur up in and read. Hmmmmm.....textile designer, artist, writer...you are indeed a woman of many talents!

The little fairy is beautiful!!

EVA said...

Your family seems amazingly critical... I LOVE the first painting and I think there are place that will take a design and make it into fabric but where I don't know. Might be worth looking into - I would make a great duvet cover!

Ans the other two pieces are wonderful as well - I think her eyes give her character!

This is great, total explosion of color. I'm glad your daughter likes it, although, I am not sure sheets that bright would let you get much sleep. They'd look great, though.
