I like my sig on my work to fit, relatively easy to see, and not difficult to find either, lol!
The problem arises to begin with because I’m filling the surface of my canvas in a way I also don’t want to disturb the work, otherwise, I can paint my sig when finished, carve it into the paint before it dries, or literally, use my Light Molding Paste I’d used to help create my more recent work, to create a raised sig.
What I found this morning though was, the latter option, being translucent on its own, had “disappeared” into the background. ‘Course I can paint the raised letters, but again I’m doing double or triple work to get my name on my painting – whew, lol! 😊
I’ve decided, for now, after viewing “lots” of signed work over the years by artists, I’ll just have to paint over a nifty looking textured area. I’ll see how that works – wish me luck!
Below are 3 more close-ups of various ways I’ve tried signing lately —

One thing I haven’t tried yet that might work is, because the molding paste does lightly raise the lettering but then disappears as the paste becomes translucent, maybe I can mix it with a paint color before hand, and see how that works. I’ll let ya’ll know 😊
And one last thing I just tried, which is one of those refillable paint pens. I filled it with white high flow paint (not cheap) and when I tried to re-put the pen back together, lost one of the parts – it’s got a spring, a couple of tube things, etc.
I “think” the missing piece fell into my paint trash bin by my easel, but I emptied and examined everything I could find 1/2 a dozen times with absolutely no luck! My caution to ya’ll is, unless you’re nimble with your fingers (mine, though long, are also kinda big and stubby) or have someone around who’s good with small messy paint parts 😏 then I’d pass on this option, lol!
So, if anyone has some suggestions re good ways to sign one’s work, please leave in the comments – thanks everyone! Stay well! 🙏
ps – my 16×20 featured in my tweet below is also quite textured, and in a rumply sorta way, but, it’s large enough to take the size sig I am able to paint onto a canvas & still look good; it’s my 6×6’s that are challenging me 😊

I’d wanted to add a violet toned painting to one of my ongoing series, one involving 12×24 panoramic monochromatic impressionist abstract work. It began well enough, with….

I’d already begun a new violet lay-in, destined, I thought, to be called Violet Impressionist Abstract 1; all along the lines of my other mostly-or-all monochromatic impressionist abstract work I’ve posted about ( my red and blue samples further down ).

She provides not only the 2 examples in my header, but an entirely different style image, one from one of my favorite painters, John Singer Sargent, and ties it to the two simpler – yet in principle – similar images top of the page.

- January 16, 2022 – My Most Viewed Image this Past Week @FineArtAmerica, Fantasy Landscape – New 16×20 #LyricalAbstract #AcrylicPaintingFantasy Landscape is currently residing at the Old Bakery & Emporium in downtown Austin across from the Texas State Capital. It’s a super playful acrylic I didn’t realize would be “so much” a landscape as it turned out, lol! All part of the “discovery” process inside each artist, often call the landscape inside, probably in more senses than one, as Joan Mitchell has alluded to.

- January 14, 2022 – Painting + Capturing Photos of the Sides of 2 #ImpressionistAbstract Panoramas Accepted by Art for the People Gallery AustinA few posts ago I announced about my art audition for an upcoming show at Austin local gallery, Art for the People, and mentioned I’d had a couple of my Impressionist Abstract panoramas chosen! One, the red version, already had its sides painted, but the newer blue version didn’t, so I got to work right away. Like I tell folks who like hearing ’bout how I put these together, painting the sides almost always takes as long or longer than the painting! Why?
Thanks again, everyone! 😊
