Can you imagine creating a painting in which you didn’t once use a paintbrush? That’s just what artist Amy Shackleton does. Her method of painting is unique in that she applies her paint directly to the canvas, and allows it to drip to create the look she wants. She strategically rotates the canvas to achieve the desired effect. (mymodernmet) While most of Amy’s paintings appear to be landscapes or cityscapes, she often juxtaposes the natural world with the urban world to create a unique blend in the subject of her paintings.
According to Amy, each piece takes about 35 hours over the course of a couple of weeks to complete one painting. Can you imagine that kind of dedication? I am not a patient person. I would need to see the end result in 3 to 5 hours. Not 35. Be sure to check out the link to mymodernmet to see a time lapse of Amy creating one of her paintings. Also make sure you check out Amy’s website to see the full gallery of her work. It’s worth your while!
Also worth your while to be going to my facebook page here to enter for a chance to win a wreath made by me. The deadline is 10PM EST tonight! I will do the drawing some time over Thanksgiving holidays and the winner will be announced on Monday! Or tonight because like I said, I’m not exactly a patient person and the anticipation will kill me. Just to give you some incentive.. here is a photo of the wreath you could win!
Now. Y’all know that is a beautiful wreath. So get “like”-ing! Tell your friends! Let’s do this! And if I don’t actually make it back tonight for the announcement, have a very happy Thanksgiving to all of you American readers. And for those of you who live in different countries, don’t forget to still take a moment to think of all that you are thankful for. If you want to. Just a suggestion. Personally, I’m very thankful for all of my readers! You guys are why I keep posting, and the source of much inspiration for me. So thank you to everyone! Keep coming back for more. Because as long as you’re still reading it, I’m still posting it! Thank you, thank you everyone!
