I love gesso?

26 Apr

I have been away for a long time. Life is happening. My matleave has ended, I am juggling work, 2 kids in daycare (read: constantly getting sick), household, and hobby. And while I do my arts projects every now and then – finding the time to share them here has been tough.

But looks like I am finally finding the new balance of things, so hopefully I will be creating AND sharing…

I am taking another year-long class with Carla Sonheim this year. I missed many of the assignments this year. Some for the lack of time, others for the lack of interest. Quite a few were collage-centered, and collage is just something far out of my interest. I don’t collect stuff and looking for stuff to cut out and use in my art feels pointless. I am much happier creating my own stuff πŸ™‚

But this week I took a day off and got into it and… fell in love with the new technique: using gesso to create textured images. I took a quick trip to the art supplies store, bought the gesso and three wooden blocks for painting – and created three paintings, reusing my old sketches. And I personally love the results πŸ™‚

These are small, about 15×15 cm (6×6 inches) – but I love them πŸ™‚
