Melting Crayons Art

This was a lot of fun although at first I was completely uninspired and didn’t really want to make it. So first I used water-based dye to spray onto the canvas. I tried several different colors and let them all dry in the sun. Then after using a heat gun to melt the crayons about in different places I still wasn’t feeling it. Then all of a sudden I saw fish! So then I went to the bottom of the canvas with a lot of green crayons, melted them then used a plastic knife to start scraping through it to make sea grass and plants. Then I added some magazine cut outs of fish and shells and now I love it! Give it a try and see what you can come up with.

Horse and Carrots

I knew that I had not painted the right kind of leaves on the carrots and that was fine with me but I did think that I had made enough leaves and in the right places. I have walked by this painted a million times a day and just now when I took the photograph did I notice that I needed leaves hanging down on the yellow part of the wall. So strange the tricks our eyes can play on us.

Painted Door

Not perfect but a lot of fun. I painted it quite a few years ago and thought I had a post about it but when looking for it to show Russell Deasley I couldn’t find it. So here it is. Imperfections and all.

The Angels…

danced around in the soft, blue moonlight, laughing and singing praises to God.

Angel-1

They blew kisses onto the heads of babies on earth down below that smelled of bubblegum and sweet gardenia flowers.
