The Girl Inside: Wordless Wednesday

Posted on

Look at this girl. This girl loves full-length skirts and fearlessly twisted her long-sleeve shirt into a halter top. This girl raises her chin at a jaunty angle. This girl is sassy. This girl still lives inside me, and from time to time, she comes out to play.

Look at that belly.

 

So who lives inside of you?

Playing with Texture: Wordless Wednesday

Posted on

I’m crazy about texturizing medium, a paste used to add surface texture to a canvas. Stiffer than paint straight from a tube, I love to scoop out blobs of paste with a palette knife and mix in a few drops of paint. Once dry, texturizing paste doesn’t drip or droop. I like to create peaks and grooves with a palette knife, and you can also make press patterns into it, or use it as glue to add collage items.

I used texturizing paste is this part of my painting, Can you guess what these are?

What have you been experimenting with lately?

Gingerbread House Rules: Wordless Wednesday

Posted on

We’d never decorated a gingerbread house before so we don’t know the rules.

All I know is that we decked out our house (kinda) and set it on the counter to live.

Almost immediately, chunks of gingerbread started disappearing. The base was the first to go. Then the people. The walls crumbled, and eventually we were left well…this.

Do you decorate gingerbread houses? If so, what are your rules about decorating? And eating?

Merry Christmas to everyone who celebrates.
