Making Pendants!

I'm a feature lampwork demonstrator at Circle Craft in downtown Vancouver on Thursday, and I'm putting some work into the TAG (Totally Awesome Glass!) gallery, so I'm getting re-aquainted with wiring.....doing up some pendants with some of the new beads that I've made. The picture above is of one of the beads that I've made recently, I love this style so much!

Busy, happy, it's all good!!

Practice with Layers

This is multiple layers of thin acrylic washes that I've treated with isopropyl acohol to create the sort of shadowy circles.It reminds me a bit of an old tapestry, definitely has a 'textile' feel, I think.

Finished with Gloss varnish, 24 x 36, Gallery wrapped stretched canvas.

New Painting, Almost Done!

A new acrylic painting, this one is 24 x 48 inches on stretched canvas. Although it appears distorted, that's because I haven't read up on how to avoid that effect when taking the photo...but I'll have to learn! 

I think this needs a bit more work, but I'm happy with it so far! Have a good week, everyone!

Making Beads, Painting, Lather, Rinse, Repeat.

That's about it for now, I'm getting back into the glass-melting groove, and working on two paintings.  All is well.  I'll be back with some pictures by late this week....have a good Tuesday, everyone!
