A snowy afternoon headed into the Great Bear Snow Shed on the Coquihalla Highway ( British Columbia , Canada ).
Last night I worked a bit more on this 12″x12″ painting. I think it is “done”. It is always hard to know exactly when a painting is finished, sometimes I think I call them “done” when I think whatever paint applied next will ruin the image. This is where I am with this painting now .
The painting is inspired by a view of Gowlland Point on Pender Island. It is acrylic on canvas. Please forgive the iPhone pictures, I still need to shoot the painting properly ( and title the painting too!).
This painting is inspired by the view over Gowlland Point (Pender Island) from the Brooks Point connector.
The next step is to work in the long grass which will be the focal point of the painting . It will be interesting to see how that works out.
Eco printing is one of the natural dyeing techniques that I quite enjoy. You never quite know what the outcome will be, it is beyond unpredictable, and that is what makes it so fun.
Somewhere in the back of my mind I knew that eco printing also worked on eggs. As I had to boil eggs for a school project anyways (and I have a HUGE stash of onion skins saved), so I thought it would be fun to try.
We started with a plain old, white, uncooked egg. Wrapped it in onion skins. Secured it with elastic bands. Then hard boiled the egg just as normal.
Once the egg was cooled we carefully unwrapped the egg and ended up with a beautiful surprise.
