A Place for Creativity & Creative People In CNY
I am on "vacation" at Lake George, and have finally found time to paint. I brought two blank surfaces to apint on [wood, not canvas] and have worked vigorously on my jellyfish that has captured a mermaid. THe idea occured to me before embarking, and I did some internet research to get some jellyfish intel. I found some pictures of brilliant yellow orange glowing orbs, with whitish fluff underneath, which seemed to be a neat thing to paint. I looked at some other people's interpretation pf mermaids while I was there, too, just out of curiousity, even though I have done mermaids, and probably wouldn't base mine on someone else's.
I packed up my painting stuff, and my husband packed up all of his stuff, and off we went. We were almost here when I realized I forgot rags. We looked for garage sales, but no one out here was having any. I didn't want to fork out good money for new towels or anything at Wallyworld, but the owner of the cabin we are renting brought me some wonderful towels bespeckled with paint that he called "rags". The cabin is way too beautiful to paint in- so I can only paint on days when it isn't raining- but I am thouroughly enjoying the experience. My painting is six foot long by 18 inches high, and hopefully I'll finish it in another few weeksa or so and get it up on the site for people to see.
The other blank "canvas" is still blank. I know I am supposed to work on more than one thing at a time, but I don't, usually. When we went swimming once on an overcast day we looked underwater with our swim goggles at the spooky dark green water, rocks, and pale glowing skin of our bodies, and that was truly insprational, perhaps that will be where my next painting comes from....
