I've don't think I've ever done this before - changed the title of a painting. Desert Bouquet was painted in 2010 and, honestly, I've never really liked the title. So, yesterday, all of sudden, I just decided to rename it Cactus Roses. I know "cactus rose" can also refer to a type of succulent, but these red blooms on my cactus just remind me of roses, for some reason. Actually, they look a little like poppies, too, but I'll stick with roses. So there, I did it. Cactus Roses is available for purchase here on my website.Comment on or Share this Article →
Artists' palettes are as unique as the artwork they create. Lori McNee shared a great article today on her Fine Art Tips blog called Show Me Your Palette.
I missed my opportunity to share mine, but I had taken this picture of mine a few months ago. Someone mentioned that it looked like spring and actually, it was the result of a painting of tulips.
I have no real method for laying out my paints. I paint in acrylics, which dry quickly, so I just place small amounts on the palette, as needed. I use a clear glass table top palette from Paragona. I love how it cleans up easily with a little water and a glass scraper. I've tried all kinds - disposable paper palettes, plastic, wooden, but the glass ones are my favorite. I love it when I find something that works for me.Comment on or Share this Article →
