Turquoise Mountain and Independence Day Shop Update

Im still working on updating pictures and descriptions in my Etsy stop this week which I recommend doing every few months. Theres always room for improvement in most everything. The downside of that is I havent been able to paint anything for a week and a half and I am getting itchy fingers. People who enjoy working with their hands will understand this 😉 Anyway some current improvements posted here. My shop link: http://etsy.me/29ijrj2 @studio313 Im still working on eliminating my tendency to be repetitive in my descriptions – not finished yet – its a process-dont judge =P

The Turquoise Mountain Textured Abstract (below) was a palette knife painting that I photo processed later. I darkened the darks in foreground using the quick select tool and a curves (color) adjustment layer. I lightened the background a touch using the shadow/highlights filter. I did some slight burning of the side of the rock face in the center then sharpened the whole thing. The original had mostly earth tones which is ok – just wanted something to go with this BA blue velvet couch lol.

I finally got this little guy finished.  This is a 5×7. It took me all week to complete 2 5×7 ‘s. I’m going to have to get on my A Game.

This next week I’m planning on working on stilllife paintings. Last week obviously was animals which I didn’t get enough time on. I may extend it out for 2 weeks. Since I make the rules I can break them right? We’ll see. I really enjoy the animals. Anyway, both paintings are listed on Etsy now.

Also here is a Treasury of Etsy artist and their artwork I put together yesterday. Its full of really sweet animal art. Take a look and  heart your favorites. Follow an artist. https://www.etsy.com/treasury/NTc0NTQwN3wyNzI4MjQxMTQw/creatures-great-small-barnyard-animal?ref=pr_treasury

On the homefront: this happened today. Always a good day for this. Even at 29 degrees. Happy Saturhay!
