buy disulfiram over counter I have been considering how to hang my acrylic paintings. As you know, they are painted on expired wall calendars. This made mounting them for display a bit tricky for me. I didn’t want to get them framed just to hang, but I couldn’t bring myself to poke pinholes in them to tack them up. So I came up with something else.
Starting with a 1/4″ piece of plywood I marked off the size of the painting and glued on these miniature clothes pins that I found at The Wall*Mart.
Then I painted the board to match my painting’s color scheme. I also affixed wire to the back for hanging.
I carefully slid the painting between the clips. I ended up adding 1/8″ dowel rods to keep the paper straight and off of the backboard.
Then once all the glue dried, I proudly hung that sucker as the first officially hung piece in Oasis Studios & Gallery.
In The Classroom last week and on The Artistic Biker Live! I showed off some photos I had taken during my lunch break at work. Â They were of several tarantulas crossing the road. Â During the discussion I was reminded of the journal entry from last year where I captured a spider web on the page and painted over it. Â Many people were intrigued by the concept so I thought I would demonstrate it this week on The Classroom. Â You can watch the video from LAST YEAR’S spider here:Â http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ADSKaFZuCvQ
In preparation for this week’s episode of The Classroom, I made a PDF for you to download and share with whomever you please. Â Capturing a Web
The little girl was having difficulty drawing stuff Saturday. Â She said, “What’s the point? I’m not very good.”
Wholly Crap if I only had a nickel every time I said those same words, eh? Â We had a long talk about practice if you want to get better and about just doing it for the fun of it. Â Letting The Process be your result, not the Product. Â She got it and ended up having fun free drawing. Â I’ve been doing hands every night as part of #100DaysArt. Â If you follow me on Twitter, Facebook, or Google+ ,Â you can get a nightly update about the progress of those. Â However, judging from Saturday’s sketch, I think the nightly practice has already begun helping me.
Both the 29 Faces challenge AND the #100DaysArt 5 min faces have officially come to an end. Â I am still drawing faces every night, however. Â I’m still drawing 5 minute nudes. Â NOW I’m starting 5 minute hands. Â Once you start, it gets very hard to stop. Â Anyway, I did a flip through video and a quick demo of the 5 minute face. Â I also answered a few of the questions that came up from viewers and twitterers. Â You can see the video here:Â http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qyoP0luC6Wo
Last week on The ClassroomÂ I finished up working on a painting of a large face. Â 26×37 acrylic painted on an expired wall calendar. Â Inspired by the hot young lady at The Dollar General that winked at me, I named it “Winker”. Â If you’re the hot young lady and you’re reading this… Girl, I’m old enough to be your much older brother…. Â <grin>
This week on the classroom, I promised to do a step by step on how I draw heads and faces. Â We’ll cover the basic rules and why I don’t usually follow them. Â I’ve made you a VERY basic PDF so you can follow along and share if you like. Â You can download it here:Â Drawing the Basic Human Head
The little girl and I are becoming quite popular at the cafe. Â All of the folks file by to see what she’s drawing. Â I guess it’s more accurate to say that SHE is becoming quite popular… Â I’m just the guy that steals her bacon.
