It’s been a busy day today – catching up on listening to podcasts,
talking to my accountant, working on my very complicated painting,
and trying to get my 10,000 steps. Sometimes it feels like a good idea
to take a little break from all the serious parts of your life.
The other night I wondered what it would be like to paint on the gold
metallic covered cardboard that comes inside my smoked salmon packages.
I eat smoked salmon at lunch many days of the week trying to avoid eating
bread, not because of the gluten, but because with bread I always want more.
So I wash and save these beautiful gilded pieces of cardboard to potentially
make art with them some day. Tonight I thought why not just do a little madonna
and see if the gold takes paint. No I'm not religious, but I am a major fan
of both Botticelli and the halo, and was happy to find out that the halo
goes back to way before modern religions. Here is a very quick five minute attempt.
And who knows what could happen with the 20 or so other pieces I've
Have a loving your life day.
I love your Madonna❣️❣️❣️ I too have saved shiny cardboards wondering what I might do with them��. Wonderful idea!!!
I might try an abstract work on one. It's very hard to
photograph them, so you can see the shine on the gold, but it was
so much fun.
