My new love

My girlfriend and I have been meeting on weekends to make art. It's been sort of an art drought since Art and Soul, so we decided to work together on weekends and share art ideas and techniques. Our first weekend, we worked on soldered pieces and last weekend, we worked on fabric painting. Although I have a good size fabric stash and acrylic paints, I never took the plunge into painting from a blank canvas. My initial piece was done from a tracing, but then I decided to draw some faces of my own. I had a bit of trouble with my facial coloring, but I must say, I had a ball. Here is one of my painted pieces and a sketch of another.

Today we are going to work on more painting and translucent transfers. Stay tuned.
