Artist Palette

Some of the tools of my trade.
 

Metal Embossing

Here is a portion of a metal embossing piece I did. Gorgeous #patina on the copper #metal . Also note the cool effects on the #wood ; this was all laid down with #paint and #mediums before I mounted the #embossed metal. Find it at colorcatstudios101.etsy.com #colorcatstudios #embossing #art 

There is a much better description and pics on the website.

 

A. A. Milne Quote

I love A. A. Milne, and have oft quoted Winnie the Pooh in casual conversation. Here is a lovely and so very true quote, which I laid down on a cutaway of one of my paintings.

Art Classes!

Yep. Getting ready for my art classes. I teach at two sites and still have room.   It's going to be a great year!

Testing Pigments

Today I'm testing pure pigments, which here come in a powdered form with no binder whatsoever.  Color theory and the relation of colors to each other are paramount for the artist.

I guess this is what you would call the artist's equivalent to a musician studying scales and keys.
