WOYWW: messy fun art in progress!

I have never participated in What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday (WOYWW) but I absolutely love looking at the desks of those who DO! I love seeing craft rooms and works-in-progress and all things crafty.  Here’s an explanation from Stamping Ground of what WOYWW is.  Since there’s no commitment and I’ve been a lurker for so long, I decided I should probably play along every so often.  🙂  So if there are any new friends visiting from that link-up… WELCOME!!

small canvasI made this small canvas in Junelle Jacobson’s Wild Art Summer class and I very much wanted to try making one (or two!) on a huge scale.  I envision this pair of 12×30 canvases hanging together in our living room.  I’m trying to have the colors complement each other and pick up tones from around the room.

Until last Wednesday, I hadn’t done any art for about a month.  Crazy, I know, but it was too hard with my daughter underfoot all that time.  It was a painful hiatus and one I probably won’t inflict on myself again.  The very second I got home from dropping her off at her first day back at preschool, I headed directly to the craft room and gooped up a bunch of heavy body paint onto these canvases.  It felt SO GOOD!


Here’s a detail of the beads on the right canvas.  The left one will have purple beads, I think, and the flower will be blue-turqoise.

    I love all that texture Naomi – your canvases will be the centre of attention. I really like using those little glass beads but the pesky little blighters roll everywhere. One day I will skate right out of my craft room. Happy WOYWW to you from Helen 27 x
