“Art is a line around your thoughts.” ~ Gustav Klimt

After my large mosaic-type painting was finished I wanted to paint more but I wanted a reprieve from one month type projects.  That led me to paint on smaller surfaces, generally stretched canvas, and draw patterns with larger sections.

One of the first of these I painted to match my purple kitchen.  It hang there now getting coated with cooking detritus.  I used three mirrors on this piece for no reason in particular, but merely because I felt like using three mirrors.

This piece has a lot of gold metallic paint in the design.  I’m rather partial to metallic paint.  I use the Lumiere by Jacquard that I purchase online through Dick Blick.  Love the glitz!  I purchase the mirrors that I use at craft stores.  They’re attached using gloss gel, which turns out to be a great adhesive.

Another smaller piece with even larger areas I named, The Star.  The piece pictured above has no name except the Kitchen Piece, which seemed a no-brainer.  Its sections are outlined with a gold marker.  The Star has its sections outlined with a black marker.


This Star hangs in our dining room because it matches the wall.  I wish I could come up with more artistic reasons for things that I do, but I’m trying to live a more honest life.  Bottom line – I paint because I like to paint.  I paint what I like to paint.  This helps keep life simple.  Amen
