Spiraling

Dang, I looked at it and looked at it and could not see until posted. Spiraling....not Sprialing or Whatever



I seem to be doing things backwards. But this is a little project that I did Saturday. Just for fun. And guess what? It lead me to the painting, Wall Flower Angels, that I showed yesterday. But the Flip video was done this morning as I was about to rush out the door.

You may expect to see more spirals. I'm loving them.

  3. I think it is so interesting what shapes we are drawn to, I hae always loved ovals and circles. Tend to want to soften squared edges. Andof course you used dynamic color so it gets attention.

    Another thing I have wanted to say but keep forgetting as I talk a little too much, but there is an old tape in my head from grade school, the tape says don't outline your work, I remember a teacher saying that all the time in art class. I saw how when you used the colored pencil, it enhanced the work, and since I am not in grade school any longer I best get rid of the tape that plays.

    I have to keep coming back to look at the Wall Angels, it is so magnificent. I have some old wall paper border, so old it is the kind we use to cook the paste for it.

    We have a cruel trick of snow on this 1st day of April.

  5. Honest to goodness, I never knew how to cut a spiral before this! Lack of any kind of art classes, you suppose? I'm soooo glad you showed us,Sharon.

    By, the by, because of your bird house video, we cleaned out ours. Mr & Mrs Bluebird moved in: yesterday finally. I expected! Thanks.

  6. Thanks again Sharon! I am needing something to do today, it is snowing and cold outside so I am not going down to the workshop today! The only thing is that most of my paints are down there! Oh well, I do have some napkins to play with...thank you very much once again!

  10. I am so enjoying learning from your videos. You have given me hope that I can one day produce beautiful art, that I really can create some reasonable fascimile of the art that is in my head. Thank you so much for your willingness to share your techniques with us and also for sharing the baby birds. Hope you will write a book soon! Kathy

  11. I love listening to your voice. Very soothing. Spirals are very cool! And the fact that you get two while making one. Expect spirals on my journal pages.

  12. I don't care how you spell it....it's magical...just like everything you do! Now, I'm going to go cut some spirals and laugh and think of you. So cool! Pat

  13. I just cut some spirals, they are so pretty, great additions of color.

    I tried a different sort of painting today, the women have leaves for feet, and no part of it is reality. My husband says that is not normal. Really that is a compliment.

    Also I scanned in one of my pieces, resized it, printed it, then chose some vintage handwriting
    scanned that in and saved it, and on a very low tint on the printer I printed over the painting. I was quite thrilled with the results. So you have with your creativity that has made me think,
    helped me think of something to do
    that I liked again. My mother had great hand writing and some old letters from Norway so Ihave things to use.

  14. It's me again...I am spiraling out of control! I agree with Z. Your voice is soothing and the next time I need a good calming down I know what to do ...just play your video's. Now that is a new therapy I'll bet you didn't know you could provide! Thanks!

  15. The spirals were the first thing to jump out at me as I love the bright colors! Glad the "fjärils" made it! Gina

  16. What a good idea! Thanks for sharing!

  17. It is amazing that the second spiral is good on smaller paintings
    they would be fun on a floral, or if the person was holding a bouquet also. And yes it is therapy to come here.

    Working on eyes, can't seem to do two alike.

  18. I'm ashamed to admit that I saw your videos posted here but haven't taken the time to watch them until today. It's so good to hear your voice again! You sound so sweet and kind and gentle...just as you are! Sally T. convinced me that I couldn't live without a flip video (such a cool little camera!) but I haven't had the gumption to do anything nearly as wonderful with mine as you've done with yours. Really great (and generous!), Sharon!

  19. OOH keep your videos coming Sharon I am learning so much
    A friend of mine has had a paper quilt with a baby on it published in Somerset just wondering if you might have come across it - her name is Megan Leslie and she lives in Western Australia.

  20. Hey, Sharon. Next time I make a video I want to get a "voice over" from you. Yours sounds so sweet and reassuring...like a kindergarten teacher I had once. I'm loving your instructional videos, no kidding.

    They're great! Keep 'em coming.

  22. Hi, Sharon! Thanks, again, for your generosity. We're on the same path. My last post was about creating stamps out of foam, and one of the two stamps was a spiral design . . .

  23. Sharon, I can't believe I reached this ripe old age and had never cut a spiral before. Thanks to you, I have been inspired to do so...and what fun!! Last Thursday, at my First Thursday Art Day in the Nest, we watched your spiraling video....now all are inspired!!! Thanks! Pat
