I did finish two more paintings to day..

This is my third painting for the Gut Art class. I really enjoyed painting this one. 
As usually I did start with the background. While drying I did cut out the colors I wanted to use for her dress and wings. I found those beautiful legs in a magazine and I did cut out the wings from two different kind of papers. 
Now it was time to paint her face, I did use watercolor paper and Neocolor. I did cut out some hearts and the Om. 
I found this wonderful text in one of my boxes.
After gluing all peaces together I did glue my girl to the background.

This is my second week painting, just a flower I made of paper and paint, bright colors, nothing special but fun to make.

Have a beautiful week

Why I paint what I paint...

Like I told you in my last post then I have been unable to paint for few weeks... had to have my leg strait and did not fit in to my studio like that, sitting in a wheel chair.

But yesterday I was able to sit for a while with my leg down so I did a little painting.
As you might know Im taking Mystele´s class Gut Art. At first I was completely lost did not know what to do but after a little help from a friend I begun to understand.

I did make a background, using Acryl, stamps, graphite, stencils, ink spray, ink, and water. I did make lines, round shapes, zikzak lines and just anything I could think of.

When dried I did turn my paper around many times trying to find out what was hiding in my background. And after a moment I had found some interesting things.

I did make the lines darker and you can see what I saw.

After I had found out what would be in my painting I did start with a white paint and then a black paint. Adding a little paint here and there.

Now I did also find a little bird in the ladies dress..

I was not to happy with  my painting, It needed a litttle more colors and I had to fix the lettering in her face.

So I did a little more painting and I start using my oil pastels that I have never used before.

So now Im done, like it a lot better like this. What do you think?

Please leave me a comment, It would make me happy :)

Have a beautiful day

Can´t paint :(

I have not been here for a long time and I have not been painting for a long time...
The reason.... I had a operation on my leg for 3 weeks ago. 
So now I have to sit with my leg strait for so many weeks, I think Im going to die...
First 2 weeks like this photo shows.

        Then I have to be like this for 4 weeks.... 

After 6 week Ill get something new on my leg that I have to have for 6 more weeks and all 12 weeks Im not allowed to use my leg..... lucky me, I have two legs so I can jump around with the other one :)

And what to do when I cant fit with my leg in my studio.... I have to knit and crochet...
My days are long so Im lucky to have a little princes that can use the things I make.

First I did start by making me a throw I can have in my Lazy Boy...
Love the colors.

Then I made a Bauta Whits cap for my prinsess.

Then I made another cap with little cute owls, Im waiting for their eyes which will arrive on Tusday by mail :)

Then I had to make mittens with the same yarn.

And as you can see, then Im never alone :)

To morrow Im taking a new class, I hope that I can manage to sit in my studio for a  little time every day. 
I need an inspiration...

The class that Im taking is GUT ART by Mystele, my favorite girl

Have a wonder week
