`Selling Art~~

Its official.

I sold my first piece of artwork today!
The best part about it???

It was my most favourite painting I did all year at SOVA!

‘Bathroom Wall Raven &the Broken Helicopter’  is a painting I did as tribute to the horrible paint job in the bathroom at my old apartment.

I kept seeing a raven and a mysterious critter…  I felt a bond with them.
They were paint stained spirit creatures.

Paint Stains.

Just like MUFASA!

When I was a kid, I saw him in the wood grains on my grandma’s wooden door.  :]
Don’t call me crazy! Call me imaginative.

Oil Practice — Book Painting!

Oil Practice --- Book Painting!

There is debate about E-readers beginning to make books obsolete.
The local ‘free-store’ [dump] is FULL of unused, once-loved books.

When I am practising painting [or just feel like mixing it up], I use book covers instead of canvas or boards.

HERE’S WHY:

  • Using outdated/unreadable books can save paper and canvas.
  • No energy is used to produce something new.
  • It gives books a new way to be loved and appreciated.
  • Self-supporting artwork (no frame needed!)
  • Adds interesting dynamic to your work

Try it out for yourself! Post some pictures! Tell me what you think!
