In honor of Valentine’s Day I decided to paint something with a theme, of sorts.  I used three colors here: Mars Black, Titanium White and a metallic blue.  Unfortunately the metallic blue doesn’t photograph well.  There is a bit of a shimmer in the blue I like that you can’t see here.  I am enjoying painting with the black paint and another color, especially blue.

I mentioned that I was having a bunch of paintings framed and I got them back this weekend.  I have them all on my dining room wall.  I think they look great.  However, I can’t photograph them due to massive glare.  I did not use anti-glare glass as it is expensive.  As it was, I spent over £200 on framing and mounting 16 paintings and mounting 2 paintings wrapped in cellophane.   As great as they all look, I can’t justify framing any more paintings at this time, only mounting them ready to be framed.  If I ever end up selling my work, it will be easier to ship if they are mounted only.  (It might happen one day.)  In the meantime, I will just carry on painting!

Tick-Tock – Acrylic on Paper – 12 x 16 inches

Colors used: Titanium white, Mars black and Indigo blue.  I was using up the last of the paint I set out for my earlier paintings. Used the brayer again. Stamped with some bubble wrap and wiped out with stencils.  Although it looks quite messy here, I think it looks fine framed.

Untitled – Acrylic on Paper – 8×12 inches (original)

Working with three colors: Titanium white, Mars black, and Indigo blue.  I also used the brayer.

After a good night’s sleep, I decided that I am going to crop this piece for framing.  I have the picture framer coming over next week and I am going to have a batch of paintings either framed or mounted for framing.  Maybe one day I will even sell some!

I’ve decided on this:

It will be smaller, but I like it better this way.  By the way, I painted the clouds with my fingers!  The splashes are my favorite part.  That was fun.  I will do a post once I have my work finished off.  I still need to make up a name for this piece.  Maybe I should write a post about that too!
