Covid Creativity: 17May2021

by Susan Irving

A couple of things I have done of late: experimenting with pours and what I can do with them. 

“My Side of the Story” ,mixed media 12 x 10 , was a dismal pour on cradled board that I decided I might as well play with. It has been embellished, as so many stories often tend to be, hence the title. 

Having wasted so many canvases and  cradled boards, not to mention paint, trying to do something with acrylic pours I decided to try doing them on paper until I get better at them.  Not wishing them to be total wastes, I cut out interesting bits, paste them onto card stock, and make them into greeting cards, and give them names. “Sunrise”  “Secret Glade” and “Goldfish” are the ones I have made so far.
