What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 63


Hope you're enjoying your Wednesday evening! The weeks seem to fly away when you enter WOYWW. Thanks for all the comments, they were much appreciated! I'm sorry I couldn't visit you all, but blogger or my broadband are making commenting so slow that it is ridiculous, sometimes I can't leave comments at all. Bah! Let's hope for a better week!

Last week I showed a linen fabric coated with Gesso and I think this is the final result or maybe I'll change something...It's a humble tribute to a famous painter (guess who!?) and you can see his painting at MOMA. I so wish I could go there some day!
The fabric is painted with acrylics, you can see them all in the large box.
The Stampscape buildings are coloured with Distress Inks and they are attached with PVA glue. I don't know if I'll frame the painting or sew it onto something, I have to think about it.
I'll grab a cuppa and visit some desks!

Hugs
Maarit

  9. Are all those paints? Fab collection if they are. I love your tribute to someone (who is one of my favourite painters - saw some of his work again at Musee D'orsay last month). I think I would frame it - it deserves to be on show. Lovely work and great idea.

  18. I own a canvas of that painting. Did you know he painted TWO paintings he called "Starry Night?" I have one hanging over the other. But this one is so great. I love your take on it, right down to the church and steeple.

    Sorry I'm late visiting, but my computer contracted a virus on Wednesday. It's still not fixed, but I had to make sure I wasn't infecting anyone before I resumed my visits. Happy belated WOYWW.
