Art to Stamp


Detail of another painting. It isn't that I only like this part of the thing. I love the whole thing. Even with this camera, which is 15X better than the last camera I had, there is too much detail to capture the whole thing and make it look like it does in person.

This is one where the goal was to get messy and have fun suggesting shape and light because I was starting to get too picky. I also used this opportunity to go big, bold and take chances with hand cut rubber stamps. I scratched in gesso, scratched through wet paint, used texture paints and lots of shine to contrast the flat matte of the acrylic paint.

And I liked the layout of this block format so much I made it into a rubber stamp!
