These blotch art paintings are for my new Jacob's ladder. They were made with the leftover palette paint of the painting,"Harvesting Humans". Once I get the Ladder put together, I will post another photo.

 
 
Worked most of the day on my second painting for my dream book. I am on a roll here, which is a good thing. Still have a few more things to add to the painting today. When my eyes get tired, I know it's time to stop. I was losing the light and it's difficult to judge color value without daylight. I am one of those painters who loves to paint in real lighting. Artificial lighting does something different and it always seems to screw up a painting if I do it half and half. (Half real light and half artificial) So, as soon as I finish drinking this cup of beans, it's back to the drawing board for me.

I also began working on another Jacob's ladder. I recycled the leftover paint in my palette and some scraps of card stock to create the images. I like being able to say, "And this Jacob's ladder was created from the painting..." Here's a video showing how I recycle my leftover palette paint.

Now have a look at "How To Make A Jacob's Ladder". These old fashioned children's toys make great stocking stuffers for the holidays, or any other special occasion. They are also great toys for adults and a fun way to showcase original art prints, if you are an artist. Try to recycle as much as possible. In my "Do It Yourself With Dali" crafting DVD, I show how to make Jacob's Ladders with different recyclables. (on sale now in my shop)
