Paint party friday once again.

Happy PPF!
I know I said I'd show my ATC that I recieved but it's so awesome and full of stuff I thought I'd save it for it's own post. And today is Paint party Friday so I had to make a post for that!

So first up, it is my brother's fiancee (Amber)'s wedding shower Sunday. (I'm gonna be a bridesmaid yay!) So as I have no money and sure as hell didn't get a Visual Arts degree so I could buy people presents, here is what I painted for her.

If you remember it's her dog Monty from this photo: 




So cuuuuuuuute! Also, although this hasn't recently been painted, I found a painting that I made as a part of some studies for my independent work in Visual Arts a few years ago. I posted it on my Etsy shop for sale too so you should check it out!

  2. Love the painting and getting a gift like that will be treasured, is it on plywood? The exposed grain is really cool & works well with her pup Monty, great job!

  4. Actually, it's on board that you usually use for encaustic painting. I first used them for encaustic (they have structure on the back so it doesn't buckle from the wax) but I used to love the wood so much that I started buying them for paintings.

  6. Great discovery I think sometimes canvas restricts us a little, I have a few pieces of driftwood I'm busting to do something on... not sure what yet, waiting for it to tell me LOL!
