Christmas Exhibition

I am ever so pleased with myself...not only have I completed my task of getting my Christmas exhibition to look like the spirit of Christmas...I have also came out tops with my wrestling match with a jewellery medium I discovered at my professional art suppliers.
Now this medium has no desire to be controlled as a mixed media on canvas and in fact is designed to be used in very small amounts..using a dropper to drop little drops. Well, when it comes to creating mixed media works the one thing I can assure is that I'm unlikely to use anything sparingly...especially as I tend to layer apon layer until I reach the detail of a piece.
Instead of taking months to go through nine bottles, I have used the lot and pleased myself with the innovative results.  Now..."what are you doing using all that jewellery medium in your paintings?" you may ask...well, quiet simply, it's gorgeous and the results are like nothing I have seen before!  Okay, I may have a number of ruined paint brushes that look like they have had a fight with an angry badger, but luckily I had an idea that the medium wouldn't be best friends with my oil brushes; and so I bought some less expensive ones from the suppliers that were soft enough to make lovely marks but affordable enough to throw them away once the painting was finished.
And so, after  sitting by the fire and watching the finished paintings twinkle and glow in the fire light I've decided to include them in my Christmas Exhibition and see what reactions they get. 
I'll keep you posted...and as soon as the new paintings are properly photographed I'll share the pics. (Christmas Exhibition dates on home page)

Nice blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog jump out. Please let me know where you got your design. Cheers
