A winter blissful moment

Older paintings I wanted to share




These are my older paintings from 2008 and I love them! I change so much since then. While I was playing around with collage this morning on wood block it reminded me of the medium I used for these old paintings which was a lot of fun and I decided to pick it up again. I used hand made decorative thin indian rice paper for this- using mod podge. Then I figure out - that instead of using mod podge, a friend of mine who is an amazing artist suggested I use elmer's glue - saves me a lot of money. And it worked just perfectly - just diluted with a bit of water and bam! You have all the glue you want. And when it dries it gives you that brilliant finish. So here are the paintings I did and I want to share it with you in case you have not sen them before.
