I discovered this today!
I have been 'altering' thrift store paintings for a while. I found this at Flicker. Please take a look at this artist's photo stream He does giant 'graffiti' wall murals.
Title: the fight
I really enjoy this.This is a painting on a photo.
Guess what I have been up to! I painted on photographs last night. I will put up as soon as I get a camera! I have 3 big thrift store painting finds ready to go. Can't wait!
I am going to photograph the paintings, paint on the photos. When I get the perfect 'addition' I will use the photo as a sketch and paint it on the big painting.
So fun.
This is my theme for today.
