I am a Butterfly

I am a butterfly, my heart on my wings

I follow my heart, hear the wind as it sings.

Be my friend, know my love and you will find

no better kindness , in sight or mind.

I will cling to your sleeve take me where you will.

Yet,  be gentile please as my thoughts I spill.

You can learn from my travels, ere the wind doth blow.

If you will but listen my knowledge you’ll know.

I am a butterfly, tell me what you will know.

Or I’ll follow the wind, and you can watch as I go.

I am not a poet but I wanna learn. I love the artists’ life, and taking part in this blogging experience has opened new worlds. Please be kind.  🙂  I am open to suggestion

This painting is a flip cup pour on an album with blown flowers. After it dried I applied skins that were cut in the shapes of butterfly wings, then added the body. I hope to apply clock works. and she will be available for purchase if anyone has interest.

Hope you enjoy!  Comments are encouraged.

Narcisus

The lake was silent for some time. Finally, it said: “I weep for Narcissus, but I never noticed that Narcissus was beautiful. I weep because, each time he knelt beside my banks, I could see, in the depths of his eyes, my own beauty reflected.

Paulo Coelho

I love fall, the color of the leaves, the chill in the air but I miss the beauty of spring flowers. Narcissus is one of my all time favorites.

This painting is a combination of swiping and blown effect, with the acrylic fluid formula.

Fallen Leaves

I love fall, my birthday is in November and I sometimes feel a spiritual connection to the season.                            Autumn….  The years last, loveliest smile.    William Cullen Bryant.

I enjoyed the process of this painting, developing in layers. Look closely to see all the little details. I love the feeling of abstract reality.  There are several Acrylic Pour techniques applied to bring it all together. If you are a fan of the process, please leave a comment. I have hopes to set up some tutorials within my blog in the future.

My post yesterday gave me some frustration. I think I waited just a little too late to post. I was on the phone with my daughter and she said I sounded really tired. She thought maybe I should wait to post till today. But I am addicted to blogging and went ahead and posted.  So many things went wrong and I didn’t find them till this morning.  It took a little while to repair my damage but I think its better today. Thank you for sticking around for more.

I welcome any suggestions for future paintings. Love the challenge of seeing if I can create my own version of the world around me with the pouring process.

 

You Otter see this Cutie

When I first started acrylic pouring someone showed me how to do the “tree ring” pour. I had to try one for myself and this was my results. It was kinda plain for my liking, but I just didn’t know what to put  on it.   I was thinking about painting a fish or a turtle but I felt like they had been over done.  So I kept looking for animals in the water and this sweet little otter cried out to be painted.

I have always loved painting animals but was kinda fearful of trying to paint on top of my pour. Thankfully I have been following a group of amazing artists  on Facebook, and with much encouragement I felt more confident in my approach.  This little guy just wanted to be painted.  Now I cant wait to embellish some more. And believe me there are more. Acrylic pouring is sort of addictive, you can’t get enough.

One hint I was thankful to learn is, if you want to paint on top of your acrylics you can apply a protective coating which will keep the under painting from washing away when you paint your embellishment.

Hope you enjoy this little guy. I sure enjoyed painting him and cant wait to try more.
