Well not me at this moment, and then who, the bird or the lady in green? I was inspired by a Somerset Studio spread, but didn't want to do just collage I wanted to paint. Paint something. Some friends were looking at the Somerset mag and it is very intersting to see what appeals most to others. In fact it is thrilling to see others get excited because a new idea has been found. What is most gratifying is an idea found that goes in one's own direction as the project starts.
I am excited because I found a product at the hardware that is a liquid weld and I can burnish it with things to make it look like I want, maybe, I have not tried it yet the burnishing part. And it will weld to any sort of material. We will see, I am gathering ideas and they are laying on the kitchen counter, not a good place for a photo taking, it seems too dark there and photos never seem right. I have also broken some ironstone dishes and some glass. I worked on the edges with an electric emery that my usband useing for sharpening blades. Also a gathering of fabrics that have nothing to do with the before mentioned. One just feels more secure with mind images. But... mostly...I just wanted to paint.
I will say this, painting tiny faces is a huge challenge, sizing original large paintings is easier.
