30 PAINTINGS IN 30 DAYS - NINETEEN - EPHEMERA


EPHEMERA
in progress

I've been working on a series of blog posts for February and it involves cataloging and testing ALL my paint. I decided not to mess up my sta-wet palette and use the lid as a mixing tray. When I had finished, I thought it makes a great abstract painting. Sadly, it will disappear when I clean the lid. Hence the title, EPHEMERA.

I had the wild idea of trying to transfer it to a paper by warming the back , transferring to a silicon sheet and then flipping onto the paper. I predict a disaster, but maybe I'll try. Otherwise I will recreate a version on a larger canvas. Yup, I like it THAT much! What do you think?

It's not such a strange idea because one of our local well followed artists cut up her painting apron, mounted the pieces on stretchers and sold them in a recent show. They flew off the walls! Perhaps I should just mount this on a birch board and buy another Sta-wet palette.


This serves as my entry # 19 into the 30 in 30 challenge. Follow my blog so you don't miss any.
