It's been quite a week
with lots of things to play with.
I've been both in mad scientist mode
and delicate painting mode.
I think the mad scientist is more fun.
Speaking of delicate, I threw a little tanty
in class and was hyperventilating.
Yes that teacher of mine just loves
to scare the living daylights out of me.
Picture me, almost finished a painting and carefully
spattering little bits of ink all happy and gentle,
then up from the depths comes a hand which grabs my brush.
My eyes get wider and then it happens,
spatter, spatter spatter with careless abandon
Panic sets in, screams (just little tanty ones)
and then the hyperventilating starts.
All while there is an evil glean in my teachers eye
as she beats up on my dainty painting.
Down on the floor it's tossed (well, placed carefully really)
oh, that looks great.
The green splots really look good.
My teacher, (yes, I bet you're still giggling at me)
has decided that I'm not a loose woman yet and
I need to be prodded sometimes. Either that
or she is really just a sadist.....
I've been dribbling ink on my jelly fish canvas
I think my camera has cataracts,
as the canvas is the most beautiful turquoise,
violet, blue and green and the photo just looks blah.
The camera seems to pick out the white,
which is really quite subdued on the canvas, weird that.
Now to my fun.
You may remember this or maybe I didn't show
a pic of this monstrosity
Hmmm, seems I disliked it so much that I didn't take a photo
of it either. Take my word for it, it was yukky, all brown
and poocacky so I put it away.
Well I got it out and did a mad scientist bit on it and
now I'm starting to like it.
Don't you find you can just go nuts on a canvas you don't like.
You can see the brownness (yuk) here but I've started
to add gloop squiggles to the background
and here is more gloop, oooh I'm havin so much fun
with this stuff and there is still a load more to do.
I know why scientists, especially the mad ones,
wear lab coats.
I've got the stuff all up the wall (cleaned for the pic)
and all over my white top. Yes, I know, why would you wear
white when you are gooping, it's a blonde thing and
anyway now I have more of a leopard print top
where my big belly kept touching it.
I could start a new fashion trend, gooped up tops!!
To keep the momentum going I like to do three or four
canvasses at once and so I drew up my next project,
another Mr P.
I'm going to get out some more goop and slop it around
mwa ha ha.
Happy painting all,
