Still stringin' along

I think I spent more time in the studio this past weekend than I did anyplace else. If I wasn't painting I was prepping surfaces or sorting and putting away supplies. I even love doing that! I did take a trip to the book store though, looking through the magazines and art section just made me want to go home and paint some more, so I did.
These are a few of the many projects going right now. I'm continuing to play with string gel and since I have that fish tank in the house now I thought I'd take a little inspiration from it's occupants. I want to make a few different fish shaped stamps and have some fun. These 2 pieces are little 5x5's that will go in the Etsy shop.

Enjoy your week.

I'm a fan! How did you get the hot-glue looking yellow (paint?) part? That is super neat! :o)

Hi Heather and thanks! Actually I used string gel. The canvas was painted yellow first. The string gel was then applied. The gel is completely clear when it's dry so the yellow you see is the first layer of paint showing through. Then I applied the other colors in a wash so it filled in the valleys around the dried gel. Hope that made sense.

It did, thanks! :o) Just Amazing!

I wish I was as artfully inclined as you! :o)
