I did some painting in my new studio today, and I have to say, it is FABULOUS having so much space! I’m working on some small 10″ x 10″ paintings, and I had plenty of room to lay out three different colorways without tripping over anything every time I moved. Wow! Every artist should have a studio like this. I didn’t realize how much easier it would be to work in a larger space.
Here are a couple of teasers for the new paintings. These are the leftover paint on the plastic, and you can see the colors that I used. When the paint is dry, I peel it off, and then I can reuse the plastic. I haven’t figured out what to do with the sheets of dry paint yet, but they’re interesting looking.
And here are the paintings drying on my newly refurbished drying rack. They usually take several days to dry.
Congrats Cassie!â˜† I’m moving into a new home this weekend with my own studio office space. Couldn’t live without it. Enjoy. Xo Fco.
Cheers to creative space!
I love your paintings, and the use of left over paint. I do mixed media, or at least I am attempting to learn Mixed Media art, and find uses for all types of recylcled or natural elements. I actually scraped off some acrylic paint that I had spilled, and I cut it up and incorporated it onto a canvas I was working on. You could use your left over paint and create a new concept…I am cutting up mine to do a sea turtle, which has all those wonderful sections on its shell. As you can tell, I am just beginning, but I am enjoying myself. Thank you for taking the time to read this, and I love reading your blog.
Thanks, Carolyn! Keep us posted about your experiments!
