So back in January I walked you through my first attempt at a particular form of art that I love, but seeing as how I was born with no art skills, wasn’t sure if I could pull off. Here were the results:
However, those supplies sat, lonely and unused in my closet, until this month.
Hey – if I crank out a masterpiece every 10 months, I’ll be famous in, like, never!
Anyway, for some reason, the mood hit me, so a couple of weeks ago I started doodling a similarly styled painting:
Yeah – it started out REALLY similarly styled.
And then I started to paint, this time with a metallic set of paints:
It only took a few days of short sessions of painting this time (the second time is always so much quicker than the first time when trying new things), and I finished it:
I had an art appraiser come by to inspect my work:
She was VERY thorough, and, according to my painting, a bit intrusive:
And, I suppose, made sure that none rubbed off on her hands,
She even checked the back to make sure I hadn’t painted over a Picasso or something:
She finally approved, and it was allowed to be hung (upside down from the way that I planned on hanging it, thanks to the advice of my husband):
It was fun, and quite stress-relieving! …and much less difficult this time.
And – I’m sure you’re wondering what Ali worked on during my short painting sessions. She was working on art herself - “Stacking”, as she called it:
Works for me.
