Body of Work.... 7 years later i have it figured.

Last night  I had trouble getting to sleep, so while i was trying to get to sleep as usual i had a million different things running through my head. My mind tends to wonder when im bored. I found myself thinking about different painting techniques i could try and different canvases i wanted to do. Then i started thining about my Yr 12 body of work- My main work of art to be marked for my HSC.
Now, i can't actually remember what i submitted for my BOW 7 years ago- memory problems due to stress lol. But i know i wasnt overly happy with it. Nowadays, with more artistic experience under my belt, i know i could do better. I have a much better way of presenting my theme.
Going off the theme i picked in yr 12- "Bottled Emotions", I re did my BOW in my head. It actually merged and transformed for over an hour :-) and then i figured it out. I know exactly how I could have represented my theme perfectly (surprisingly it had nothing to do with bottles- more so boxes :-) If only I could go back and do it again the way i planned in my head last night lol.
Even though I have no one to submit it to, or no reason to even do it, im going to make my Body of Work. I just wish I could show my yr 12 art teacher how much better I did this time around lol.

Outer Space inspired....

This is one of my favortite paintings so far. I called this "Outer Space Horizon". I blended a number of colours to give me my background. Then I threw paint at the canvas- one of my favorite techniques. :-)

Lets Paint...

My most recent painting. I did this one last weekend. I used a canvas for the backing and attached my painted canvas panels to it to create dimension. Im really happy with the way this turned out.

Time to catch up.....

Its been way to long since i posted on my blog. What is the point of having a blog if you dont post now and then....
Lately ive been spending alot of time swapping thanks to a fabulous site- Swapbot (great site, give it a look). Not only have i been swapping but ive also been painting and adding to my art journal. The one (or 2 things) that i HAVENT been doing lately is actualy scrapbooking or cardmaking. I lost my mojo for a month or so, but im hoping to get back in to it... as well as getting back into my blog. :-)

So from now on, hopefully, ill be posting more of my scrapping and cardmaking, as well as my paintings.
So ta ta for now, and ill see you soon. :-)
