Details of the Blues

                                                                   Upper Right

                                                                   Upper Left

                                                              Lower Right

I did get a request for seeing some of the details of my painting "He's Got the Blues". I especially like the first one, the upper right; maybe it's because I'm right handed that I like to put some interest there. In this case the calligraphy is stamped on very thin paper and then glued onto the painting. That way I can move it around, adjust the size, and decide where I want it by looking at it before gluing it down. I also use Yes paste which is water soluble and can be removed. It also allows me to easily paint over it which is more difficult with mat medium, a second choice for adding collage.
This may be my last post for awhile, we must begin our transition to Florida again. I don't think there will be time for painting but I will sneak a peek at the blogs during the week. 
Thanks for all the encouraging comments!

  1. Beautiful! You make it look so easy... but I know it's not. Thanks for the close ups- I enjoyed seeing them.
    I hope the move goes smoothly!
