When I'm not writing I work with arts and crafts. I make both cards and also paint. If you would like to see some of the pieces of work I have made in the past you can find examples here: Gallery
Yes I know what you mean when you say that you like the feel of the piece. Artwork is something that is personal to each person viewing it, and what causes one person to feel sad might not be the same piece as another person.
That piece was made using a technique called Encaustic, its actually wax that has been heated up and ironed on to form the various shapes. When I scanned the piece onto the computer it didn't look quite right so I flipped it from left to right and inverted the colours creating the piece you see there. Since you can place the wax on in layers you can actually create pieces of work that has a 3D feel to them, which is slightly lost in the scans but can be seen on the actual pieces.
Well actually I will be offering a piece of artwork made by myself as the top prize of a competition that will be based on my book when it comes out at the end of this month, so you might be lucky
Wow! that is a beautiful piece. Dreamy. I'll check it out.
Congrats. i'm also an artist but my medium is black ink and i usually draw nature scenes or fasntasy themes. (I love dragons).
