About Me

My photo
I live in Mooringsport La. and work in construction full time and dabble in art when ever I can. I would love to be able to do my art full time--who knows, maybe one day I will. In the past year, I started doing Festivals, trying to sell my Art. It is ALOT of work, but worth it. I have met so many people with the same interests as myself.

I did get to the studio this week and had a chance to
try my new Canon IX wide format printer.  The prints were great.  I got a total of 10- 8 x 10 canvas' completed and was so happy with the results.  I hope to get about 10- 10 x 10's done this weekend and a couple 5 x 5's.  I think that will be a good size selection.  It will help my inventory tremendously.

 Also tried rusting some washers that I am going to use for jewelry.  I just bought a bag of washers from the hardware dept. at Walmart, dropped them in about a cup of bleach, added a rusty nail and closed the lid on the jar.  It rusted almost instantly.  So, remember this when you wanna make something look old.  Bleach works great.  Just beware of the fumes, they can be a bit strong.

Don't forget to jump over to my website @ http://venusbluesarthideaway.com and leave a comment for the November drawing--it will be one of the canvas prints.  Not sure which one yet.  But, I will post it on the web site within the week.

Hope that you all have a great day.

  3. I also 'rusted' some washers (and other bits of wonder) recently. I used vinegar and salt. Smelled like a salad for awhile, but it did "rust" the items!

    I'm so glad we 'found' each other. Actually, YOU found ME.


  4. Your painting is gorgeous! I always admire someone who can create art through painting as my only talent with paint is baseboards and walls. ;-)

  5. Great tip about rusting - I must try it! Thank you so much for visiting me and leaving a comment (and if you need any blogging tips, my other blog 'Computery' might be helpful to you - also, you can ask me for help any time). Hugs from the UK.
