Painting My World with My Heart

Kite Hearts

I’ve been painting little paintings in acrylic for a few months. I have gotten hooked on Robert Burridge you tube offerings. He is a wonderfully wild and crazy painter who probably eats color!! I shared him with you a few months  back.  I am making little paintings on gessoed watercolor paper. It’s a beautiful surface to paint with acrylics! And relatively inexpensive.

Then I got waylaid with plantar fasciitis and a bone spur from a long-ago achilles heel injury… What? No fun. It’s definitely kept me off my feet. So I started painting hearts. How hearts and pained feet go together, I have no idea but there you are.

Painting a bunch of little paintings on one subject is a really good way to work out what you want to do ahead of time. I’m really not at all a planner of my paintings other than a very rough sketch, or more likely, a vague image in my mind somewhere. In acrylic, unless you keep that paint really juicy, it’s going to dry within minutes. Especially where I live! So I’ve learned how to control that issue, plan a little, paint more quickly as well as keep the paintings small.

This is actually collaged with tissue and that gives it some extra texture. I’m having a lot of fun between this and learning how to take photos with my new IPhone via an online class thru FB. I will share the link when I can grab it. Judging from the looks of the above photo, I can use some tips!

  1. I’m wondering if it’s the same link on FB that’s giving me a lot of useful tips about taking photos with an iPhone. x

      It’s a really big group, like 16000 or something… I have a lot of issues using FB but am learning lots with the videos. They’re simple but much more than I certainly know. 🙂 And the link is up now tho not 300% positive it’s the correct one. That’s what I mean… so many members and cooks, some of the instructions are garbled or confused. Oh well… it’s still fun to learn how to use the thing. 🙂

      How are you doing, my dear? Hoping things have settled down with the continual health issues!

      1. I’m sleeping a great deal!

          I hope that means you are feeling OK. I’ve lost track because I wasn’t online for a few months. Trying to catch up however it’s hardly worth the time anymore…. Seems blogging is definitely on the way out since, in general, nobody wants to read. I will probably keep this up til I build up some inventory then it will be my storefront… Sigh…. Anyway, my dear, hoping you are feeling better. For me, sleep sounds pretty good! xxx

          1. Not great but will do. Just seems to be a very slow process. Bless you. x

              Dear Sarah… I am sure you are tired and slow processes such as these illnesses are life-changing. When people have never endured “not getting better”, they rarely know what to say. It touches a nerve. Some people have run in my life but I understand.

              I have compassion for your journey and hope you have support and very good doctors to ease the way. Always here, Linda

      Hi Silvia! Hoping you are well. Thank you for stopping in and saying hello. I’ve been away for some time but am trying to get back to my blog. I find it’s not particularly working anymore. I blame the reader primarily for that but it is what it is. I get to see your work via my email otherwise I’d never find it! much love, linda
