1  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Mothers Without Borders on: November 13, 2011 11:57:26 PM
From a picture taken by a good friend while on a humanitarian mission.  These three boys live in an orphanage in Zambia, owned by the charity Mothers Without Borders.  I painted this for her to thank her for some awesome favors that really helped me out.

2  CLOTHING / Shoes: Discussion and Questions / Any tips for acrylic on canvas shoes? on: November 13, 2011 09:41:15 PM
Hi!  I'm going to start customizing canvas shoes, and I could use some pointers.  I'm already a portrait artist using acrylic on canvas, so have a beginning knowledge with the medium.  But I don't really wear my hung art around on my feet, if you know what I mean?  I'd like to know how thick I can get it before it starts to crack, if some paint brands are better than others, etc.  I plan to use the same good-quality artist acrylics I use for portraits.  Maybe use a wet-on-wet technique to stain the fabric where I don't mind bleeding.  Maybe use a gesso underlayer on the areas where I need fine detail.  Maybe seal it with a good waterproof varnish.  Any thoughts?  My white shoes arrive in a few days and I'd like to get a few done for Christmas presents.

Thanks!
3  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Hindu brides: 2 of 3 on: November 13, 2011 09:17:02 PM
Hi!  I'm brand new to Craftster.  I just wanted to introduce myself and put up a few pieces I've done in the past.  Currently I'm working on a 3-painting series of Hindu brides.  Two down, one to go.



What you can't see with the photography is the 3-dimensional relief of the jewelry, and the gold enamel.
