Reunion and Paints
This morning I left and drove down
the road 1 hr and 15 min to visit with my
daughter and grandsons.
We were having such a great time that
I did not get pics made except for this one.
DJ painting on the bird feeder I got him.
The boys Nina (other grandma) rode
down with me.
Been thinking of the up coming
Found this on Pinterest.
Back a couple months ago I
made this frame for the upcoming
Was thinking it was a tad plain so
I added a touch of
Then I pulled this one together.
I have been packed for two days
for my trip. So ready to go.
But I have been doing some cleaning,
errands and other stuff.
One thing I have been doing is
with my paints.
This is pour paint on a piece of
My friend Debbie loved it but
it really was not her colors so
I asked what that was and made
her one for her room.
(not sure what that white on the bottom
is cause it is not on the painting).
Before doing Debbie's however I
made this one.
I love playing with the paints
like this. It is fun and easy.
Here is some hit and miss
directions on how to do
I only use three colors. Adding more
seems to make the paint
muddy and some ugly.
I squirted peach in the cup, I
make sure the bottom of the cup
is covered and just a tad more. This is
a really an easy way to waste paint so
I don't go over broad with it.
On top of the I added the teal,
and then beige.
(the sides of the cup are from the other
project above - dried paint).
I then turn the canvas, wood, etc
and placed it on the cup.
Then I flip it all over.
I then lift the cup slowly, letting the
paint roll out as I move the cup over
the canvas. Once that is done I
tilt the canvas in the four different
directions letting the paint slide
over the canvas covering the whole
thing. Sometimes I will even
squirt more paint where I think
the color is needed.
Once that is done I lay it flat to dry,
this also allows paint to pour off
the sides so be sure and have paper
under it. Once done I take one of the
colors in the art and paint the sides.
These take NO TIME to
produce and I think they are so
For those of you that don't know
what this next painting is let
me tell you, this is a
from Star Wars.
Painted this the other day
for my son Cory.
