Mineral King Painting Factory Phase II, 2

Posted by on Feb 13, 2018 in Mineral King, Oil Paintings | 8 Comments

Now there’s a creative blog post title for you. . .  just the facts, ma’am.

I’m almost finished with this phase. Paintings need to dry, get signed, scanned, and varnished. Have a look at the various stages.

Cute little 4×6″ oil painting on board, on its very own easel.

2 scenes waiting for wildflowers, and a bridge awaiting some painterly confidence.

Drying from 2 sky do-overs.

Say buh-bye to the unwanted pomegranate.

Maybe next week I will have a host of completed, signed and scanned Mineral King oil paintings to show you.

    Jana, I am interested in you scanning a painting. Do you have a scanner for your computer as apposed to taking a digital photo of the painting? Is a scanner better for picture quality? Is it expensive? How does the scanner work? Sorry, if I sound not very knowledgeable, which of course I am not. Thanks, Janet

    Do you enjoy having multiple projects going at the same time? Some people are the same in crochet–having many items in mid-completion, they say, makes the craft less boring. Me? I like to decide on an afghan, buy the yarn needed, then work on just that pattern until it’s done. And then the leftover yarn is used for charity blankets.

    Oh, by the way, I do read your blog every day, even if I don’t always comment. You are to be commended for your posting so faithfully!

      Sharon, I appreciate you so much!

      I rarely get to buy yarn because I am on a severe yarn diet, working my way through my stash. Generally I have a minimum of 2 projects at a time, so that there is a mindless one to do in public and a more difficult one to concentrate on while alone.

        Now, see . . . the concept of a “yarn stash” is totally foreign to me.

        “Pattern stash,” on the other hand . . . !

          Oh Sharon, I wish. . . patterns are so much easier to store. But when a fabulous yarn store goes out of business and friends reduce their stashes and neighbors die and the husbands share the wives’ stashes. . .
