I believe that this is a painting that never ends. Today, when I sat down, my goal was to put on the stars. They needed something. I had just cut out squares of different printed paper. As, I arranged them, I was unhappy with that. I was thinking that I would blot some gold ink on there, but I wanted a bit more control for the stars, because I had a small area. I cut a circle out of a piece of water-color paper, and I made gold circles to enclose the stars.
That didn’t integrate well with the rest of the background, so I mixed some turquoise and white together. I lay the circle over the gold, and painted around messy, thinking that the star light would probably bounce all around . I decided that I couldn’t have stars that all looked alike. After all they are as unique as we are. So, I cut the stars into different shapes. I put them on with a glossy gel medium.
I have words that I want to add to the painting, and I am thinking that will be the ground, so I wanted to have a color I could write on. I found a magazine picture, and I made that into the ground.
Tomorrow, I still need to tone down that glow. It is atrocious. I am not sure yet, how I will. That will be continued in our next episode.
