Paintings 3 and 4 of my contribution for the Village Gallery Art Challenge which opens on Mary 5th at 10:00 am. The one on the right is entitled "Blue Vipor." I wanted to find a snake with yellow and blue and found the Blue Vipor which can be found in India. Real snakeskin shoes have always been a luxury and now you can own one without any harm to the reptile and at a bargain price.
Painting 4 is based on a pump which was created from a watercolor. I entitled it "Watercolor Bliss." Obviously the background is very typical of a painting with watercolor so I wanted the shoe to be different in texture and color.
Both paintings are 6x6 on ClayBord mounted on a 6x6 canvas cradle and sealed. I like the backgrounds just the way I originally sprayed them.
Sharing my paintings with others is one of the joys in my life. Educating others about how I paint and the media I use is very important and why I wanted to reach out through this blog. Hope you will add a comment about what you see.
