Inspiration can come at any time and on any subject and using any medium. I have been longing to paint since I got home from teaching at the Hudson River Valley Art Retreat on Dec 10, but Christmas has kinda got in the way. But after doing a little Internet Christmas shopping (So grateful for the Internet!) I finally found the time, before my son came home, to just play.
Yes, this is painting. Not just painting, but painting on fabric. I thought you would like to see the process over the next few days or weeks, as the case might be.
I am supposed to be taking down the Christmas tree today, but color and paint are calling to me.
I started just randomly painting a simple design on white fabric. The fabric is taped it to an extra cutting mate with duck tape. Love the duck tape. Keeps it taught while I paint.
What about trying a bamboo design? I really like the way this is turning out. I think I need one more design? So back to the studio.
Maybe the Christmas tree will come down tomorrow?
