Out Of The Mist
5" by 7" original oil on panel
I am so excited to have my sons coming tomorrow. One will be home on break from Virginia Tech and the other down from Reston where he lives and works. Today I will be cleaning and shopping for groceries and presents...no I am not ready for Christmas and generally fluffing the nest.
I had some fun with this painting trying out a mono print. I have done this before when I need to stop for the day and I have quite a bit of paint on the panel. I take a piece of paper and lay it on the painting and then it will be ready to continue the next day without too much build up of paint. It creates a mirror image and I really like the look. On this one, I embellished it a bit with more oil but wished I had just left it the way it was. Next time, I will try it on watercolor paper or even another panel. Have you ever tried this? What kind of surface do you lay over your painting? I know one artist that painted on glass and then did several prints from it.
Isn't it cool? One leg looks kind of funky...that is where I embellished it. I bet canvas paper would be a good option too. I will keep you posted as I try more of these and will probably have them for sale with a mat. Don't forget the calendars! Only a few left. And gift certificates! If you have someone who loves animals or cows and you don't know which one to get, you can give a gift certificate and they can use it when they see one they love or have me paint their pet or favorite subject. Have a wonderful Thursday! Thank you for stopping by!
