Painting and Designing Textiles

Sometimes I like to get outside myself and change things up just to get another perspective.  Changing mediums does that most times. So I’ve been doing some painting on paper. I  used acrylic paints mixed with various mediums, mostly with a transparent glazing medium, a holdover from my days as a furniture and wall painter. I learned to paint with layers upon layers on tables and such. And that’s still how I use paints on pretty much every surface.

Then, I made a digital collage using sections of these paintings.

Now, I’m struggling to climb over all the barriers that Spoonflower erects for its customers to upload and organize their info and art. It really irritates me that they want to sell you the directions to their website instead of providing a decent tutorial! OK, I’ll stop griping and move forward on a more positive note:

I just learned that I was accepted into the Melrose Arts Festival again this coming April!

Linking again with Nina Marie!
