Today I've been working on a new mosaic figurine. This is the base I started with:
I first make a drawing onto MDF, and then usually get my hubby to saw it for me. But not this time.... He figured I needed to be able to do this myself. Actually, I agree with him, but I have an irrational fear of saws. When I get stuck (which usually happens right away) I start panicking and try to loosen it and something breaks off .... Which I don't really want since it can take me a long time sometimes to draw the figure exactly as I want it.
And then my 13-year old son stepped in and did it for me! He sawed 5 pieces for me! Perfectly, I dare say. So proud of him! One of these days I'll learn to do it myself, but for now I'm happy to let him help me ;-)
I haven't done as much as I would've liked. I kinda forgot how much work it is. Fun, but a lot of work. It's like making a jigsaw ... This is what I have so far:
Since this is not a painting, and I'm linking to Paint Party Friday, I'll give you a quick overview of what else I made this week:
Day two: a one-line doodle:
Day three: new mosaic pieces:
Day four: a miniature-painting:
And that issue came out yesterday. And guess what? I was on the cover! Well, obviously not me, but one of my paintings! Wow, that's such a nice feeling! I was glowing all day :-)
Here it is, if you click on it it'll bring you straight to the issue on their site. Go have a look! Some very interesting articles in there too!
There's some more work of mine in there. So I'm a very happy person :-)
Well, that's enough for today. I'm linking this as always to Paint Party Friday, and also to Art Every Day Month.
I want to thank you all for taking the time to visit me and making comments. Each and every one is appreciated very much! Hope you're having a wonderful Friday, and wishing you an inspiring and creative weekend! See you tomorrow! ♥ ♥ ♥
