Art Expectations


I have been neglecting my Pip lately! Sorry Mr Pip. But I have been very busy creating other things, so I thought I’d share those with you. Something overcomes me at this time of year. It’s not only the craziness of shopping for Christmas gifts, trying to find the perfect gift for everyone. But I start wanting to make and bake… a LOT. I love the smell of baking cookies mingled with the slightly burnt waxy smell of a hot glue gun heating up. So exciting! The possibilbities.
I finished up three large paintings this week, non-Great Expectations related. (Maybe I just needed a break from Pip.)
Here they are: (Well, here are two of them. For some reason my SD card reader is not cooperating at the moment for me to get the third pic off.)

    1. These two paintings were done in acrylic on canvas, pretty traditional. But I did add a little bit of collaged paper on the flower painting, at the bottom. Thanks for your comments!

  1. I am so inspired by your site. I found a ton of diskettes at a recycling depot for our school board and the students in my grade 2/3 class have started to prime them with gesso. I’m not quite sure when or how we’ll use them but the kids are already excited about the prospect of using these mini ‘canvasses”.

    1. I am so glad you found all those old diskettes! They are the perfect size for little pieces of wonderful works of art. I hope the kids really enjoy recycling them. Plus, they already have little holes in the corners for hanging. (the diskettes, not the kids… hahaha!) I admire your dedicaiton to your students and I know they will remember you and all you have done for them!
