Using acrylic paints and a small piece of wood that is approximately 3"x 3.5", I painted my first ornament of the 2017 season. Inspired by the sun-moon theme, the composition introduces two culturally diverse figures. With contrasting colors, the figures interact in such a way that it is difficult to appreciate both of them at the same time. The ornaments that I will create, will have ribbon attached and be available for $10 plus the cost the shipping. No two will be alike.
Today I began painting a blues inspired work using acrylics. Progress was slow, but I won't be satisfied with the result unless I take my time. The theme is blues greats drowning in music and liquor. The scene includes a row-boat, lake, catfish, dock, bottle of whiskey, Billie Holiday, Robert Johnson, and Charlie Parker. A lot more work is left to do.
