Fair warning of a long post ahead!! This past weekend I had some family come for a visit.
The good news: I finally got to meet my oldest niece! She was placed for adoption when she was born and after 12ish years, she decided she wanted to get to meet and know her birth parents and their families. So I got to meet her. And she's adorable! And she likes art!
The bad news: I got overcrowded in my studio space and super frustrated at how there were times I had no idea what was going on or how much paint or silicone was being used. It changed the vibe in my studio completely. It went from a happy and fun place to a frustrated ball of anxiety place. So I decided to get all of that frustration and anxiety out in some grungey paintings. Only the paintings kinda turned out more Halloweeny than anything. 🕸🕸🕷🕸🕸 Oh well. They did work in getting the negative feelings out and my studio feels like the happy place it should be. So it turned out well. 😊
Art tip: I didn't see how much silicone was used in the paintings that were done with my family, so I can only tell you that using too much silicone can cause some bubbles that don't pop as the painting dries. So the painting will look like a toad with all its bumpy bubble bits. (I am soooo disappointed with those paintings because the colors turned out so well but the bumps just ruin them 😭😵)
