Monday Musings

Well, late yesterday I took off the saran wrap from the YUPO painting, it was nothing like I thought it would be.

My eldest son stopped by with our granddaughter (he had taken her to a Father-Daughter ball and he felt it looked like a rain forest. So I'm going with that. I think I will add some judicial darks, although kind of difficult with YUPO and see if I cannot make a mess of it.

The other one that I did yesterday I really messed up by trying to paint over what I had done. If you remember it looked like the one on the right side. But then I tried to add leaves in an orangie red and it became a messy mess.

So Today I redid the blues but I also put in the reddy-oranges to form some leaves later. Then I put salt over some of the orangie red and put a separate blob of saran wrap over the oranges. Then I covered the blues with separate saran wrap. Now I need to let it dry thoroughly and hopefully form more recognizable shapes. If not, "it is only paper and I will try again.


  1. Hi Judy, Your use of YUPO is exciting. Keep at it - it'll teach you so so much. You've got the touch.

  2. Thanks Sandy. I like it, am frustrated by it, but get neat looking abstracts. Just have to figure out where to go from here. Whether to try some negative painting or what.

  3. This one looks like a couple of 'shark koi' coming at me!!! LOVE IT!!!

  4. There was a lot of good things going on in that shell painting...but I understand the frustration of losing heart ...realizing the thing is too fussy a thing! You were right to abandon it instead of slogging away at it. I love your splashy things..and I'll be back to follow your progress!
