The Blue Chair Painting

Anyone who knows me knows I have to take a break sometimes from one craft and dive into another. Yesterday I got the urge to try something different in painting and this is the result!

Usually I have to have everything just so in a painting and that gets BORING after a while. I wanted to just feel the color, go wild with texture and I found just the thing I needed to get the effect I was looking for. This painting had the addition of fine sand to the paint mixture and I am experimenting with a few other products to see what kind of results I get with those.
Well after a quick visit to the vet for some Clavamox for Squeaky I will be back playing with solder this afternoon! I also want to trip around my favorite blogs and see what you all are up to as well! I love to see what creative beauty has bloomed today!
Hope everyone is having a wonderful Tuesday!


  1. The sand is THE perfect touch....and I adore your painting. It's in the 'naive' style that just calls to me!

    I've said it before, I'll say it again...I love your paintings!

    Hope it's coolin' down at your house,too! Fall can't be too far away!!!

  2. Hi honey
    Gosh I have missed you and your lovely art.
    How are you doing? It looks like you have really been busy and I love love this piece.
    As always I am in awe of your talent.
    Wish I could keep up with my blogging friends better because I have missed you.
    Stay well

  3. Looks like you have been having fun. Great effects, I must say. It is fun to move around to different projects. Experimenting is so much fun. Hope you are having a great summer. We seem to be stuck in the clouds.
