Another finger-painting. I have become a very tactile person the older i get and even though you cant get the fine details that a brush could give you I love the feel of squishy paint between my fingers. I know it sounds gross but it almost tricks your brain into thinking of your piece as a sculpture being molded instead of painted. If that makes any sense. ;)
Well this was an eye opener. Another acrylic but this time i tried pouring, as well as my fingers dipped in water to acheive this marbleing technique. Overall it "was a beautiful painting till it started to dry and then it cracked. I dont know why - maybe because the paint was applied so thickly. hmm! Anyways I thought I would share what was. I peeled this painting off and are saving the paint skins for another project.

Well as a mom of 4 kids I often get inspired by watching them at their easle's. Well today we decided to give the old fingers a go round and see what we can come up with. I actually like alot of what is going on in this piece. The movement in the back water gives the illusion of other fish or seaweed moving around - I dont think this could have been created with a brush. Not the best "painting" but definatly a good basis for another one like it.
