I am a native of Colorado and the colors, textures and flavors are always with me.
This is the result of one of those middle of the night brain storms.
I love it when that happens but am usually disappointed with my results when I try to
create whatever I had dreamed.
So this is a vein of turquoise as I imagined it would be, an "earthly vein"
The process was fun (and messy).
A rough sketch on gessoed paper.
The messy part! I added another layer of thick gesso and created my rocks.
When all was dry and about 24 hours later, I set about painting it.
Can you guess what these are? The last one should give it all away. These are circus wheels.
I was very lucky to have a visit from my daughter last week and we went to the Ringling
Circus Museum. It was amazing! And these were so colorful, I had to take a shot of them/.
Wishing all a Happy Paint Party Friday
P.S. My bloom this week is a teeny, tiny dendrobium
