Each year a new technique?!
I had lost the count, but today visiting my blog I noticed that I haven’t posted anything for a year! Against the last year, being concentrated on resin cast reproductions, this year I have been concentrated mostly on some more natural technique, that is painting on stones!
We live 10-15 minutes far from a lovely river “Trebbia”. The valley in which this river flows “Val Trebbia” is the most beautiful valley in the world, according to Hemingway! What is more inspiring than walking along a lovely river side, looking for the stones which could be turned into different kinds of creations?
The procedure is easy, if they are small and flat and have a nice shape, I pick them up, then drill them to use them for my paintings on stones as pendants. If they are bigger, and have a particular shape that transmits already the idea of a particular creation, I pick them up to use them for my bizarre sculptures, and you will see what I mean by bizarre! 😀
I use acrylic colors to paint on my stones, and then after a couple of days, when the colors are completely dry and cured, I apply several layers of varnish on them.
Here is my recent work, it’s a lovely romantic scene, isn’t it? It could be used as a home decor, or a table or shelf decor. I have created several pendants or art stones with the moon theme during this year. I am a moon lover, what about you?
