The detail in the cast is a little contemporary...hmmm...will see how it works when I try to paint them...LOVE TO EXPERIMENT!!
So, today is the last day of warm weather for awhile so it was down the mountain this a.m. for errands and gathering of stuff so when I'm locked inside tomorrow it will be all business!
I never have given up on my paper cast ideas...just keep putting them on hold until something feels right. So, I decided to play with the aspen 4x4 piece and the paper cast idea. I found something that made it a bit easier to make a tiny mold for aspen leaves...I'm not saying I'm committed to this...but I'm playing with the idea...again!
And...It has been SO long I'm sure you all forgot my molds I've made of leaves...and how I painted on them...well...this...maple (I believe) leaf cast was painted over with an awful painting...so I gesso'd over it and have another idea for painting...
So...not only do I have the unfinished pieces I've posted these last couple of days, but this maple leaf...I'm bound and determined!!
Let's see what tomorrow's productivity will do for at least one or two of these unfinished babies...
Thursday I'm so excited to get to go to my friend Carol Nelson's and hopefully soak up som fauvist portrait info!! I've got to go through photos of me or someone so I can practice! FUN DAYS!!
