Paint Party Friday ~ Catch a Fallin Star

Thank you Eva and Kristin for hosting this Friday Inspiration Workshop; I'm sure many of us will benefit from this community of painters. I'm not a painter but I have done a few paintings and sketches in the past and would like very much to paint more of whatever I feel the inclination to capture on canvas. In  time, hopefully get better with the practice; especially when I've committed myself to participate and create work in this medium for coming Fridays.....certainly have every intention to make them good. So I've decided for starters that I would use this old image of my moon for this week's Paint Party Friday entry. What I did initially was digitally cut out the moon and stars from my painting and incorporated them into a digital collage with the gothic arches and angel and forget me nots and universe. I was pleasantly surprised to see how lovely it turned out for me considering I didn't really visualize the picture before I started the venture and I actually liked it better than my original painting. In the future I hope it will be the reverse in some occasions. I  actually want to better myself in this art form as well as DG. and photography and so many more mediums...ahh art is so much fun! Definitely, very therapeutic.

I will apply the image to fabric paper and then seal it behind glass with silver solder. I have been wanting to make some pendants with this moon for some time now and this PPF has helped me get started. I will try to take some pictures of the work as I create the pendant. In the meantime I will start my other moon picture in a winter's landscape.

Until next time, Happy Painting.
Hope I have inspired you a little.
