This was a really fun night! We painted a recent painting of mine, and everyone did a spectacular job. It amazes me how people who may have never held a paint brush can create such wonderful pieces! I have to thank Jason for all his help (and we missed you Nevan!), and of course my beautiful daughter, Meg. It was great to see Brett again, and some other familiar faces. A great class! Thank you guys for making it so fun! And please check out, not only upcoming Canvas and Corks classes at the Birmingham Community House, but all of their wonderful and diverse classes.
With Inner Glow, I painted randomly and messily (is that a word?) with acrylics, wet them, and painted around the areas I wanted to keep that accidently turned out pretty cool (like the "glow"). And the next one was fun, and very easy to name after the fact. They suddenly looked like a bunch of pumped up women looking for a fight! Both available on dailypaintworks.
This is an angel painting I did for a friend and relative's baby that is on the way. I did something different, and wrote a prayer/poem to go with it. I had it printed on transparent paper and put it in front of the painting. I found out the hard way that an inkjet printer won't do it, and it had to be printed with a laser printer. Anyways, I found what I thought was the perfect frame. It seemed like they loved it! I like the text on it, and I may do this again for special gifts or as a custom project. I have always loved writing poems, but never really incorporated it with my paintings.
