"Birdies" - canvas on MDF - 20x99cm (7,9x39")
I wanted to take this painting to the gallery, so I had to come up with a solution. So I ended up buying a piece of hardboard and glueing the canvas on top. I must say I like the tight look of it. It's a lot heavier now, but since it's only 20cm high it doesn't matter too much. I called it "Birdies". For obvious reasons ... ;-)
And I finally finished my boxes. That is to say: I finished the outside. They still need a coat of varnish, and the inside needs to be painted too. But at least they look finished now ...
Here's my zentangle-box:
These doodleboxes are so much fun to do, but also a lot of work. It's not easy going around the sides everywhere. So I'm thinking about making some small paintings like this. Easier to work on and still fun ....
Well, that's it for this week. I'm linking, as always, to Paint Party Friday. Head on over there to see wonderful works of all the participating artists.
And pay a visit to these blogs too: Natasha, Kristin, Jez, Susan and Gina . All these artists tried out the "geometrical painting technique" that I used for "Birdies". I love seeing all the different interpretations of it!
Thanks so much for visiting, I really appreciate your lovely comments every week! Hope you're having a great Friday, and lots of sun and joy in the weekend! ♥ ♥ ♥
