Art Supplies

Don't you love getting new art supplies??


I've made these mini versions of canvas, palette and brush for my current bead journal piece.

Slowly but surely plugging away on this piece...


I'm sure for you, it's like watching paint dry...


I think the beading will start next...and I plan on beading improvisationally...no plan for that at all...

Well...

Except maybe for the hat...

I can't wear just any old hat...

If you have no idea what I'm talking about, you may have missed the first few posts for this project. You can check out the origin and the progress of this piece here, here, here and here.

Thanks for stopping by to check up on me...until next time, my friends...

Yes, it is like watching paint dry ... on the canvas as a new masterpiece emerges from an true artists brush.

It is a privlege to peer over your shoulder while you create.

I am loving watching you create this piece. Quite elaborate!, but most of your pieces are and I am sure that we followers didn't realize the precise attention to detail in every piece. Oh, we look at the end result and gasp. I look at all the tiny details in your wonderful pictures, but...watching you make all the little components to this piece is delightful.

Thank you. And nope, don't feel guilty at all that I am not that precise. . . nope, not at all. LOL
( really Boo Hoo inside)

Your work just blows me away. You are too cool for Charm School.

Judy S. said...

That brush and palette are amazing, Susan. However did you do the brush? And I agree with Chris. You should DIRECT the charm school!

This is so wonderful!
Thank you for sharing!

Is this not a picture of one of my fave movies? Scarlett O'Hara in Gone with the wind?
Love the hat AND the dress. I think I am born to late ;)
Looking forward to your next step.

ALWAYS such an inspiration, Susan...think I need to go buy some new art supplies... :>]]

I am so enjoying watching this piece (indeed all your beading pieces) emerge, such great ideas. It has been wonderful to share in your beading journey. We miss you on the JE path, but we know we'll meet up on the JE road one day. This extra journey you are taking is well worth it, we just have to figure out how to get you to the UK leg! Hmm, must start scheming with Carol-Ann!

Susan,

Figured I'd post on this piece since you may not be checking for comments on the picture piece... What kind of a lens do you use for your pictures? Your pictures are so wonderful! They put us all right over your shoulder.

Sheila -- I shoot with a Nikon D70s camera and I use the only good lens I have...a fixed AF-S Nikkor 50mm 1.4 lens. I hope to get a macro lens one day when I get extra money...*wink

Plays with Needles said...

P.S. Sheila...the reason why I have that lens is because it works best in low light situations like indoors...when it's cold and rainy outside...it's a great lens. It does has its drawbacks with focal length however...which is why I dream of a macro lens one day...

Email me if you have any more questions.

Susan,

As always your work is amazing. I love watching other peoples steps in the process, it is so exciting the way an artist's mind works. Keep up the good work and don't rush your process this one is going to be worth every minute you put into it.

PS: I like to watch paint dry
