1  Giving of my heart (a gory love painting) in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by pursecution on: December 21, 2005 05:10:56 PM
I did this painting for my husband for our anniversary.  Call me a hopeless romantic...just kidding.  My husband is sort of a gore fan, so I wanted to do something he would like to hang up, as well as displaying my love for him (thus giving him my heart, granted it's still in my hand).  It was done on clay board with oil paint.

2  Painting of Mata Hari in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by pursecution on: December 12, 2005 05:30:49 PM
I had no idea that there was a sectiion for art beyond crafts.  I never even paged down on the home page to see everything.  I love it.  This is a couple of my recent completions.  I'm working on putting a show together that revolves around women and what we (society) view as beautiful.  This is the tragic beauty, Mata Hari, and an emotionally confusing painting of a geisha.  They are both done in oil.

3  hand painted brooches in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by pursecution on: December 12, 2005 10:53:06 AM
I am trying to be conservative with money this x-mas, so I decided to make the gals in my family and my girlfriends brooches for their presents.  It's nice because each one reflects part of their personality and they are cheap, just a little time consuming.  I used wood that my brother-in-law cut for me (he goes to school for wood working and cut it for free for his grades).  As for paint I used good old acrylic, just watered down and in a lot of layers (other wise it dries too quickly and gets uneven and clumpy).  Then I sealed them with a high gloss sealant meant for painting.  I gorilla glued pins on the back of them (gorilla glue is the best for hold) and voila!  Hand painted brooches.
