My husband asked me if I had written here lately.... hmmmm no, I said guiltily, not happy Jan!! So I thought about what I had been doing recently and this is what came up!!.........
I purchased some stickers from Redbubble with my artworks on them. They look very cool, even if I do say so myself!! My grandson has pinched one for his bike and I have a wolf on my car now. Not sure what to do with them, but I am sure there will be times when I will want to put a sticker on something and think 'oh yeah! I can use mine' They are good quality and the print is nice and bright.
My niece gave me 6 canvases which have photography prints on them. Her boss was throwing them out and she thought I might be able to use them. So 2 layers of gesso, 2 layers of painting my picture, and 2 layers of matt finish worked a treat..... I painted a sulphur crested cockatoo in amongst bottlebrush, with a bright blue sky, I really like it.
The problem is.... I feel guilty that the canvas is not new, and in two minds about selling it. What if the person held it up to the light and could see the print? What if the person knocked it and the print showed up underneath? What if down the track it started to peel?
What if? What if? So I figure if I don't feel 100 percent to sell something, then its best not to. Then I thought what about if I stated that the canvas is recycled and am selling it for half price if anyone was interested. I came to that conclusion and so be it. It is hanging in our dining room and to be honest I would be happy to keep it as it is one of my favourite pieces I have done.
You might be saying well what are you going to do with the other 5 canvases? Well I might paint on them over time for family or friends that ask me to paint something for them and I can tell them first about the canvas. Be interesting to know what others felt about this, so if you feel like putting in your thoughts please do so.
Anyways this is the painting I did on my recycled canvas!!!
Here is the painting going to WA!!
Love and Light to everyone of you.
