Art Experimentation

I recently finished this page of doodles that I wanted to turn into some bookmarks for the stacks of books I’ve been ordering at a time from the library. I’m trying to get through my “to read” list on Goodreads, yet it keeps growing instead of shrinking.

Doodling got me wanting to do some painting, but not just regular painting. That’s where the experiments started. I began with this painting, but quickly decided I wasn’t going to be able to cover the pencil lines any time soon, so I abandoned that canvas and started another.

The bottom layer worked out pretty well, though a little sloppier than I would’ve liked. But that wasn’t going to matter if my idea worked out.

Spoiler alert, it didn’t. I was going to try punch needle on the painted canvas, but it didn’t work out the way I had hoped. It’s ok, though. That’s the point of experimenting. And now I have a couple canvases that I can dismantle and turn into something else. Super excited to do more experimenting.
