Rains Cozy and PPF

 Click image to enlarge!
Spiritual Deer forest

canvas 23x30 cm.    This one took me several days to complete. It was when I placed them unevenly that I liked it. And then I remembered I had some white deer's as well. They are cutouts.  And, there are glitter on it, like a little snowfall. An hour ago I noticed my kitchen floor are glittering too.  😀😇

Santas Cozy vacation

For Rains Cozy challenge. This is painted in photoshop, first time I tried something like this really. But Santa is photographed. I bought them in New Zeeland many years ago and thought I could combine it. Santa is part of my Christmas decoration.

Abstract pour on panel 18x24 cm
I bought the panels earlier this week as they were cheep and wanted to try it. But, as you can see they are bent, curved at the short side. I thought they should stay flat 😞
Both panels are the same colors. I dipped the second one on the standing one. There were too much colors on it. But the final result is very different from each other.

PPF Blue and yellow

 Click image to enlarge!
 Yellow, holiday fantasy.
The base is a canvas 20x30cm that I painted yellow. The ballerina is the one I created earlier by cutting it out. The deers and candles are stickers I bought. I layed it out and took a shot. Fixed the rest in photoshop, removed shadows and such to create true silhouettes.

Blue!  Sketch paper size A5
Just testing the colors. Earlier I had been cooking lingonberry (cowberry) for making jelly. I love the red colors it has. After painting the black and blue I thought the red lingon  would be nice to ad. The lingonberry added some color and texture to the, well, abstract painting.  Anyway, I am not going to eat it. 😀

AEDM30 Last one this time

 Click image to enlarge!
 The Handle has changed form a bit while working with the plastic folio on the canvas. I also added a few decoration rivets to it to ad a little contrast.
Canvas 20x30 cm

This is the disc with the handle overflow I used in the abstract above.

Meadow bokeh and dipper

 Click image to enlarge!
Meadow!
Yesterday I gave the BOKEH a shot. Worked rather well but I need at least one larger circle. This is the foam brushes I used.  I did enhance the colors in photoshop. A5 watercolor paper. 

 This is the scallop I had earlier. Tried the bubbles and foam but only got a couple of tiny bubbles. I think it has to be done on paper or canvas to work.

A brown and grey dipper for Rain´s garden.

AEDM28 Blue lake disc

Blue lake disc with a "handle"

© NF Photo 191128

I created a pour yesterday. When I looked at the table while it was drying I noticed the overflow of black paint had created a handle. The image with the handle is the image I like best, as a photographer, it also have colored reflections from my window light strand. The overflow is on a thin plastic folio. I am now preparing a mixed media painting using the "handle". But it will take time for that one to dry. 😟 I hope I can share it before AEDM is over.
