I have had a lot of time at hand this weekend, and I really needed to get my art going again. Not always easy when you have a ‘normal’ job that you need to take care of first, and that is why my art has been set aside more or less. But feel that that trend might have ended. As an artist I just love the feeling when the pictures take form in my head while I am working on another picture, so I have to keep them coming.
And as I was working on the pictures for the children’s book I am working on, I had this image below popping up in my head. I have used this cat in many ways in the past, when I was painting wooden buttons which I were using to create magnets. But once I get an image in my head, I kind of have to get to action and put it down on paper.
I really like the idea of doing those so called extended pictures. It is really easy. I simply bought a frame with mounting paper, and then used the mounting paper as measure when drawing up the image.
I am showing a few stages of the picture below:
And here is the final product, framed and ready to go to a new home.
This picture is suitable for many areas, if you have a narrow wall at home or in the children’s room.
