Weekend art

I was getting pretty frustrated about painting....and then did this one. Nothing outstanding about it, but I like it! I really loved the underpainting and had thought I'd leave more of it showing, but ended up not. I wish I could find a style of painting that fits...but maybe, as my husband reminds me, it has to be about fun first!

The other thing I did was to try a pot melt with scraps of the fusible glass I have. It made this really cool one of a kind design...I will slump it into a plate, probably, although it still has some bumps from the second fusing....I am so hooked on the process that I've got another one in the kiln now....If it has enough clear in it I might make a face underneath it, looking through all the layers. The dimensionality is what is so cool, and you may not be able to see unless you enlarge the photo.

Saturday artin'

I have four more glass coasters fusing in the kiln but didn't get pictures before I put them in. Then I worked more on the third painting for the online painting abstraction class I'm taking. This was fun and hard  ....I had so much stuff going on it was hard to unite it....but I do love all the layers....

fused glass coasters

Over the last week I've made 4 fused glass coasters to go to the Liberty Bay Gallery in Poulsbo. I need to make a few more, and a couple of big faces....but I also want to do another abstract for the online class I'm taking. Well, I do have the next four days to get things done.....ah! The beginning of the weekend, when time looks so expansive!

Abstract Painting

These are two paintings I did from Betsy Dillard Stroud's online class on Abstract Painting through Artist's Network University. I first read the lesson when it came out and wasn't all that interested...but I was also getting ready for an out of town trip. Today, however, I read the lesson, cut some stamps, and had a blast doing these two paintings. I don't think I left enough room for your eye to rest...but I was loving the texture!
