Minds Eye Series-New Mixed Media Painting
I’m starting to work small, 8 X 8, which is hard for me. I want to do a mini series, call Mind’s Eye. I like the metallic favor of the piece. After that, I think I will move on to larger pieces.
I did find a new paint support called cradle boards. They are basically like a stretched canvas except instead of canvas, tung wood is used. What I really like about them is that it gives the paint a different look. Plus the smaller sizes give a tile theme to the work. They really don't need a frame and they are much more stable than even canvas. The price is about the same for decent canvas but I just like the feel of them.
I get to see the Doc on Wednesday to see if I can go back to lampworking. I doubt it will be back to the number of hours pre-surgery but it still would be nice to light up a torch again.
