Hi guys, Well I really didn't think that I would have anything to show this weekend as I've been working on a painting for my living room. Hubby has been nagging me for some art work since we had our house renovated last year. I finally made time to work on something and have had a really productive Sunday. I didn't get out of my pajamas til about 2 o'clock as I was too busy painting. Hee hee!!! Such a great feeling to get 'into the zone' which doesn't happen all the time so I thought I'd make the most of it.
So here is my Koi fish first up I have a work in progress shot. I used the tissue paper and texture paste then painted a few layers of colours in the background then drew on the Koi Fish with marker pen.
In the meantime Rick decided that he wanted to work on his own piece of art. I am amazed at the results! :0) For as long as we've known each other he's always maintained that he is not an artistic person but I've always seen him as being creative when it comes to food etc (as you will have seen from my previous posts about what he's been cooking up lately.) So yesterday he went off to the hardware store picked up some paint and 3 canvas' went outside in the freezing weather and created his first master piece :0)
I think he's done a fantastic job. I told him he did a 'Pollock' and I had to google him so that I could show him what I meant heheh then he said 'no Pollock did a me' ;0).
It goes really well with our decor in our house and gives it a really modern feel. I'm very proud of him and excited to see him trying something new and hope that my creativeness has rubbed off on him a bit. He's already talking about ideas for his next piece :0)
