Red Ginger

I've been wanting to do a red torch ginger painting for our master bath since we moved in and after getting some canvas panels thought it would be fun to try it on those.

I sketched out my design using a sketch and wash pencil and then went in with acrylics. I placed it in the bath over the weekend to "live with it" and see what I wanted to change on it. Here's a first look before I go in and make changes...I like to share the ongoing process with you. I think it gives a look into the creative process and/or the mind of the artist.

So...a few things I want to change...the lauhala is too brown - needs to be lightened and more texture lines added. The ginger needs to extend further down below the banana leaf. Add a second bloom? Randy suggested the ginger to have more definition like it did when I sketched it in pencil.

Stay tuned!

Failed it!

Have you seen those gorgeous snowflakes you make from hot glue and glitter that are plastered all over pinterest? Gor-gee-ous! Really. See?

Hot Glue Snowflake Ornament Tutorial

Remember my last post about snowflakes and blue things and how one thing leads to another? 

Here ya go...


ROFL! These suck!
But they make me laugh too. I painted them blue because I wasn't quite ready to throw them away but I am now. I'm glad I didn't waste glitter on them.

I bought a new glue gun.

This adventure lead no where interesting. Matter of fact...I changed direction altogether.
Here's a peek.
