I'm still plugging away at my painting. I almost broke one of my goals last night. I vowed not to pull any all-nighters this year. Last night when the munchkins were snug as a bug in a rug I was so tempted to stay up until I was done. But the thing is I would have so payed for that today. A 5 year old and 2 year old aren't quite so understanding about being in a painting groove. And since neither of them ever nap, that mean no nap for Mommy. So I was a good little artist and packed away the brushes at 2 a.m. giving me just enough shut eye to function today:)
On another note I found the perfect place to photograph my work at night. My laundry room. It has fluorescent lights and it provides enough light for my camera to at least pick up a fairly good representation. A friend says she puts a pink light bulb and a blue light bulb in her fluorescent lights to simulate day light. Anyone know if this works? Also the washer and dryer are the perfect height to prop my board up so that I get a great angle. Of course I would figure this out when I only have 6 more months before we move. Fingers crossed I have a designated art area in my next house, at least a place to store my ever accumulating art stuff!
Hope you're having a great week. See you on Friday for the Feature:))
The way you paint glass is truly magical! This is so beautiful!ReplyDelete
It's going to be amazing!ReplyDelete
This is coming along beautifully, Carrie. Gee, I'll have to tell my husband to try photographing his ebay stuff he sells on the washer and dryer. He is forever trying to find a place to get a decent photograph. I don't believe he has done that yet. Hugs, CarolReplyDelete
Amazing work! :-)ReplyDelete
Carrie, this is looking mighty fine - love those greens! Kudos to you for getting so much of it done!! [ I never would have thought to use fluorescent lighting. ]ReplyDelete
This is astounding! Those reflections are just incredible!ReplyDelete
I have a daylight bulb in my art room which is pretty good. I've never pulled an all-nighter though because my room is at the bottom of the garden and I'd feel a little scared!!
oh my this is going to be astounding!! i love stayin' up late painting while everyone is gently snoring. i take my stuff outside toward evening. your set up sounds like a great idea! so looking forward to this being done, it's just stunning.ReplyDelete
Really spectacular Carrie. You are crazy good! :)ReplyDelete
It is getting better and better each time. Really wonderful, I just love how your paint glass. Can't wait to see the finished painting.ReplyDelete
Good for you, having the discipline to know when to call it a night! It's really hard to stop when you're on a roll. It's looking wonderful so far!ReplyDelete
It's going to be an awesome painting when finished, Carrie!! I LOVE IT ...ReplyDelete
I love how it looks so far! It is beautiful and very coherent -- hard for glasses with all those small pieces of shapes like puzzles! When I tried they always seem to feel off into pieces. Great work!ReplyDelete
The fluorescence two bulbs should work -- I learned from a photographer if you use a blue and a warm bulb it simulates day light. I have tried it myself and it seems to work. Let me know how it does for you!
The speed at which you work is so amazing...
