Game and glitter

 Click image to enlarge!
Three in a row! 
This is a game I have that is made of marble. I photographed it and the created the the flying marble balls and the support in Photoshop
For Rains TAD, Games, this week!


From foto to art. Well, like photo was not art. 😇
A photo of grass in snow. We actually had snow for a few days. 
Today it is turned into mud.

Grass painted with acrylic on A5 photopaper


Glittery landscape
Acrylic paint on watercolor A4 paper. 
I created the snowy ground with the layer upon layer technique I learned lately. I think it is 4 layers of whites and blues. The grass/twiges I painted with the color Raw Umber as black was way to black. 
😁


 Just playing around with a Triptych color palette.
Acrylics painted with fingers. And framed with a lace I have.

I guess many of you are happy today. There are now a new President in the US. 
I hope President Biden and vicepresident Kamala Harris will be able to implement much of what they want to do. 

Take care everyone, there are still a pandemic going on.

Skies, birds and roses

 Click image to enlarge!
Winter night
This is the background from last week. I painted some snow on it. Or is is stars? 
I photographed the background with an iceicle stensil for windows. Then painted the moon in Photoshop. So, kind of a mixedmedia piece. 


Using the same acrylic colors as before. This is two photopapers. The large one A4, the small one 10x15 cm.
 I painted both images with the blue/green colors and marked the corners of the small one with a round foampencil. And painted the owls.


Smowy owls
on the small paper


Rose island in a pond.

Birds and skies obviously for Rains promt. Even if all is connected to each other.

That´s all for today. We had some snow so I have to shovel the car before I can go and shoot some wintershots. 
Take care everyone.

Take care everyone. There are many problems in the world right now. 
I think : stay indoors seem to be the best advise!
At least we have our art!
