The Blessing Tree
Enamel on Canvas
I'm working with oil-based enamel sign painter's paint and canvas. After doing a brief stint with classic oil paints, I'm enjoying the fluidity of the sign painter's paint. I'm using my grandfather's beautiful (antique!) brushes for this series, and feel so honored to hold these gorgeous tools in my hand when I work.
My grandfather's sign kit.
I'm doing it all freehand, with no tape, nothing.
The challenge of freehand is great, and has been doing so much
for my concentration and focus. It also amazes me that my grandfather did this every day for 40+ years. The admiration I have for this lost art is so deep.
As I finish more pieces I'll post photos in my portfolio gallery. In the meantime, please 'like' me on Facebook at www.facebook.com/jodiwhalenart
