New thrift store finds- still life
Hello there, I just love finding new treasures to paint, I recently purchased this vase and the little bowl at a local thrift store. I get so excited when I come home with a new prop. My husband and I went antiquing this week and I bought two old copper containers, you know you will be seeing those soon.
I tried a different technique for this one, can you guess how I painted it? I am willing to try almost anything, such fun to try something you haven't done before. Did you guess? I put on a glove and painted it with my finger, ha. I am amazed how much I like it, it's loose and juicy and the values really excite me. I found a gal painting on Ustream and she finger paints, I thought why would anyone not use a brush?? I looked at her website and her work is good and she gets big prices for her work, so there you go. We should be open to anything I guess. I will be trying this again, maybe that's my niche? hmmm Let me know if you like it, I know it isn't perfect but hey it's my first, lol
Have a wonderful weekend
