Playing with Alcohol

8x10 on acetate

4x4 tiles
Now that the summer show season is winding down, I have time to play a little.  We've had cases upon cases of plain ceramic tile in storage waiting for me to find something creative to do something with and I think I've found it. These would make great coasters or a backsplash in a kitchen, or even framed alone.  Made with alcohol inks (purchased at any craft supply store in the stamping section) these inks only work on non porous surfaces(like glazed tile or acetate)  No brushes used!

I'm Back!

I'm back!!  I'm sure some of you thought I'd given up painting and gone on walkabout somewhere but I have been just as busy as ever, but decided to take the summer off from blogging to recharge my brain.  I have lots to share, but for now I will just share a painting I created during the Black Swamp Arts Festival this weekend.  I traded one of my not so famous cupcake paintings with a local cupcake shop for some cupcakes to paint while I sat in my booth. This is the first time I'm dared to venture out and paint publically and I was surprised at how I didn't seem to mind it as much as I thought.  People were very gracious and most just watched without comment, something I was worried would be too distracting for me.  Here is the first one I created yesterday.  Unfortunately the free cupcake offer is no longer valid (sluuurp)
