A Little Something

I'm working on a series of small paintings on 5 x 5 inch panels.  These aren't canvas panels, they're 3/8-inch thick wood panels from Blick, which they coat with a canvas-like layer of I'm not sure what.  Even after the two coats of gesso that I applied, there's still a pebbly texture on the panel. 

Anyhow, I applied paint here with a palette knife and then stamped the circles with acrylic paint.  I have 10 of these small panels, and it appears that I have begun my journey back to painting with these. 

Hope you have a great day.  I plan to.  xo

I really like this! It is one of those images that contain images...like looking at clouds.

I like! I have a bunch of those from Blick as well- mine are 8 inch square. I have thought about putting gesso on them and smooth it across with a credit card.

Sometimes it helps to get rid of things. I just took 20 bags of crap out of my studio and I feel so cleansed. Thanks for inspiring me.

Love the "pop" you get with orange and blue! Good composition.

love it - bright colors...I seem to have a thing about orange lately!
I often do small art pieces on wood boards that I get cut down to squares at Lowes...much cheaper...and one side is usually pretty smooth if you get the pine boards...

Looks like a great re-entry, Connie, and makes me want to paint, too!

Blick panels are new to me - maybe not available in the UK? They look like they're a very promising re-entry for you!

This is very beautiful to my eye, Connie. I appreciate your honesty and continued sharing with us.

You almost have me going off FB for good!

A lovely vibrant piece, Connie. I like the blue spots that lead through, and the texture on the board.

Happy positive energy just bounces off your canvas, small though it might be. I'm very curious to see the series when completed. Have fun!

Sometimes small gets your foot in the door. Love the red. Not sure about what's on these panels, will have to check them out, the texture looks like cheesecloth to me. xox
