#lovesummer art - A Mixed Media Canvas

Hi everyone!

Well, I couldn't resist doing another project for the YouTube artist collaboration called #lovesummerart !  I found a 6"x6" canvas board and decided that it would something fun to create for a change.  I've been working 3"x5" index cards since June 1st, so it was nice to be working on such a solid surface instead of a flimsy card. lol

When I first started this, I had an ocean sunset idea in my head and that I needed to use some products that I hadn't used in awhile.  So I grabbed some of my Golden Fluid Acrylics as well as a few other things.  It wasn't long until my ocean scene turned into grasslands, thanks to my blue and yellow paints mixing together and that was just fine because when I started, I decided that I was just going to play with different mediums and see what happened.  I work best when I go into a project with that frame of mind, because I don't have a set idea in my head and just keep my head open to prompts from my muse.

I really like how this turned out and the only thing that really bothers me about it is that I think the horizon line should be a bit lower.  It's too close to being in the middle and I prefer it to be either visibly  higher or lower than the middle of the canvas.  But, that's okay, it's a fun, little piece of art that's now sitting on my mantle and a great reminder of the plains of my home state.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope that you enjoyed my two creations for the #lovesummerart collaboration!  Now, back to working on my ICAD's! July is almost over and I'm determined to have a card for each day!

Take care,
