"Alchemy" ... After selling the art on my walls- I realized I had a lot of white space available. SOoo, I finally painted something my husband has been requesting forrrreeeeeever, and he LOVES it!!!! Yay! :)
This number was an adventure ending in a clean slate. Watch the painting progress below! I call it: "Mind - The Collision"
Above is the first layer I made with glue and acrylic paint.
Above is the first top coat of oil.
Above is when it begins to come together...
... it continues.
And above it is done (for now)! What I like most about this new painting is how it looks good hanging vertically and horizontally, and also looks good flipped both to the left and the right.
"Are you selling your original pieces anywhere online, Camille?"
More and more people want to buy my original paintings versus a replica in print form- even if it is printed on sexy Premiere Art Canvas Satin. This caused a dilemma I had not anticipated: just how could I unclench my precious paintings from my tight grasp and let them go?? Turns out, not so hard only when I start a painting with the intention of letting it go. Some art just belongs to me and my wall, and there is nothing anyone can do about it. They are stories of my life, memories... however, I am ready to make new ones.
As paintings continue to pour out of me, I am extremely excited to expand my paintings and share them with you in a more intimate way. I am listing my original artwork for sale on Etsy.com very soon. All artwork will be initialed on the front, signed on the back and titled for authenticity.
I will keep you posted! :)
Have a dandy day of doing!
