Art Eggs Inspired by Ellsworth Kelly



DSCF6115

These art eggs are inspired by the American minimalist, Ellsworth Kelly. In my last video, I discussed the philosophy of naturalism and how Ellsworth Kelly’s work exemplifies it. As a Christian, I am passionate about the intersection of the arts and faith. I’d love to hear your feedback!

If you’d like to paint some modern art eggs of your own, you can find plain white wooden eggs at Hobby Lobby, as well as the Master’s Touch acrylic colors. They lend well to the imitation of Kelly’s bright hues and simple forms. The 1/4″ red tape is also from Hobby Lobby.

Have a great week and thanks for stopping by to see my art!  ~Scarlett

Red Violins

I’m still experimenting with glass painting.

These prints were created by painting quickly onto a piece of glass with acrylic paint, and then printing the image onto Bristol vellum.

The first one wound up looking a bit scant so I tried it again, brushing the paint more thickly onto the glass.

Here’s the second one, framed.

“Cellist” ~Glass Print on Vellum

I painted this design free hand on the back of an 8X10 piece of glass. I turned it over and pressed it onto Bristol vellum.

With a small liner brush, I added some brown lines to create movement around the bow…

This is a fun technique I’ll definitely be trying out more in the coming weeks.  Thanks for stopping by to see my art!

Baby Turtle and the IKEA Lamp

DSCF4498

Another custom baby turtle painting finished for a special little boy in Wales, UK.

This colorful canvas if for a little boy who reminds me so much of my Knox, that my heart jumps with joy every time I see his photo on Facebook.  He could be Knox’s twin!  He’s so precious and happens to have a favorite lamp from IKEA that he loves to knock over again and again!

I hope you like your painting, Danny!  With all my love ~Knox’s Mom
