As I do I  saw a piece of Art and was super inspired by it. It melded together with other inspirations and I knew what I wanted to do. I had a painting I made which I wasn’t so thrilled with so decided to use that piece of wood because I am loving painting on wood.

So I spread my molding paste colored with Acrylic paint which turned into magic. The texture achieved with the molding paste and the painting is amazing. Its thick painterly, delicious. It looks like thick impasto oil. I’ll have to use this technique again. BUT THEN, I use a small comb to make a wave like pattern in the thick paste. With the under painting coming through when I made the pattern an magical texture. The different lines created by the texture catch the light at different angles creating an beautiful iridescent pattern.

My finished painting will be part of my Egyptian series and will be celebrating the abundance of life. Abundance of the Birds of Air, Fish in the sea, Animals or the land and maybe abundance in the garden.
