All right - I finished my latest painting!
The Old Mine
(click for details)
This is 12 x 12 wrapped around canvas. I used torn pieces of corrugated cardboard, with the paper backing pulled from one side so I could have the ridges to work with. Also, I used a cardboard protector that comes around a cup of coffee which had lovely circle texture. The painting includes acrylic paint, heavy gel medium, some stencils (they are in the background) and some really great old iron rings found on a friend's property which are all nice and thick with rust. There are also gear shapes I cut out of the corrugated cardboard. What a fun piece to do! And now, I shall rest the remainder of the day, 'cause I'm worn out!
