This is the painting I finished a few days ago and was going to post yesterday but decided to add a few more highlights and shadows. It is titled "Honey, I'm Home".
Started it last week while hubby was out of town, hence the painting and title, I GUESS? I like the textures. This was an old collage that I never really liked so I threw some paint on it thinking I would turn it into an abstract piece. It didn't
want to be an abstract, so after the paint dried I applied tissue paper with gel medium and made sure it had ALOT of wrinkles in the paper to add texture and also to try and hide the previous collage elements. After the gel medium dried I painted this picture. To make the silhouette stand out a bit more I cut him out of an old map and glued him down; covered him with a nice coat of gel medium, let it dry, then
painted. I used my finger to wipe the paint off his chest in the shape of a heart,
exposing the map underneath. With the gel medium covering the map it was easy to swipe the paint back off.
Sorry if I haven't visited blogs much this week. This is the sinus infection from hell and it doesn't want to leave. Starting a NEW antibiotic today. Hopefully this one will do the trick.
