MY NEW ART BLOG HERE I would love your company.

A New Year and a New beginning... I have created a new blog filled with old and new art. It is time for me to focus on something new. I will be leaving this blog open for inspiration and so I can look back at what I have achieved in the future but I will be adding no further content here.

Summer of Color 2... Rainbow Sherbet

Ooooh the Summer of color challenge has started again and because I loved it so much last year well I had to take part again :)  

This is what Kristin says about it on her blog :-
"The Summer of Color is a six-week long party where we will focus on and create art based upon the luscious colors of our favorite ice cream flavors. "

You can create anything you like with the gorgeous colour prompt which this week is 'Rainbow Sherbet'  ooooh lush lush lush!! 

So I had a bit of a play digitally with one of the faces I drew for the 29 faces challenge... altered her a bit and put her onto a digital tag....


Then I remembered that I had started a large mixed media canvas ages ago that had similar colours so I ran and got it and decided to finish it.  Well I think it's finished but I could always change my mind later.    I've turned it round so many times to decide which way up it should be and I still haven't made my mind up.  It didn't photograph too well but it is really bonny close up :)


So I thought I would show you some of the gorgeous texture...


really makes me think of the mixed sherbet bags I used to dip my fingers into when I was a kid... ooh I can almost taste it!!


I do like tactile art and wish you could see how lovely the whole canvas looks in real life.  I so enjoyed it too... the fun is in the playing :)


I hope you will come and play along with us... it doesn't matter what you love to do... jewelry, atc's, painting, journals...there is room for every kind of art and next weeks colour choice is mint chocolate chip....ooooh Yeeeeesss my favorite ice cream of all time.

hugs
Chris xx

Can I just say... I LOVE the name of your blog :D

As someone who also struggles to get pictures and texture to show in photos I know what you mean, Love your detail shots, just want to stroke! Gorgeous colours.

Molly said...

that is beautiful. the picture of the whole canvas doesn't do it justice... the details are gorgeous!

and your tag is lots of fun, too!

i like how you've got one piece that's VERY vibrant and the other piece that has a softer, more ethereal quality to it. very nice.

Tracey Fletcher KIng said...
