Back in early January, when I 1st mentioned working on Walking With the Stars, I also mentioned our 8 year old grandson had been ( and is ) a big help in getting this 24×36 complex-textured work along.

Now I’m finally remedying that, lol!

The process for this piece is long ’cause I laid in a full canvas covering with a paint mix of watercolor and acrylic, followed by a lay-in of the leg lines. Afterwards, I slowly began applying glops of Golden’s Fiber Paste around the legs and to the lines.

That often meant I had to clean off paste that crossed over from the big brush applications. The same applied later when Max came over and helped me carefully begin to apply the paint / gel medium / light molding paste mixtures of colors over the fiber paste.

We have begun to get very close to all the leg lines now, but still need a ways to go! That particular work is literally touch & go!

Max also went with Grandma and me to Art for the People gallery to see my new work at my 1st gallery show since mid 2019! All in all, a very full, very enjoyable day 💕

Stay well everyone! Enjoy all the great things you can! ❤️

  2. […] What happened is, while applying Goldens Light Molding Paste over the painted area to the right of the figure, I happened to apply enough for me to see another alternative – an arm! Skewed slightly sway, creating both a slight sense of motion and closing the gap to the right of the figure — and — I think, more importantly, and unintended, but extremely welcome – a more interactive stance between the figure and the night sky.The awareness between the two, figure and her world around her, seems reciprocal and interactive….I know one thing – it’s a whole lot easier for me to create the figure I want first, then work the background to match, than the reverse like this time, lol!People 1st – ’cause where’s all this we keep talking and posting and writing and signing about coming from?Ultimately, we can believe and think and hope or feel we know where these lives of ours are coming from. But somebody, something, somewhere – around us, in us, has it for certain coming through us….In art and love, we come closest to figuring it out……and it’s still a mystery 💕 😊 Stay well everyone! Keep experimenting! It’s a sign of faith, and hope! ❤️ ps – below is my tweet to another of my posts, related in style and size and imagery, to this new work in progress, Dreaming with the Sky and Stars –February 01, 2022 – The 8 Year Old Helps with Continuing In-Progress Painting, Walking With the St… […]
