Beautiful works, Astir!  :tickle:

Heh, you reminded me of something that once happened to a friend of mine. She, too, is very keen on arts, and her favourite medium is acrylic paints. So once in her art class she was doing a picture of something that was mostly in green colours. Later on, when she was going home, she noticed that a young man was staring at her all the time in the bus. She made her proudest look (like "I don't care you're watching me, see, I turn away from your looks") and ignored him.
At home she looked in the mirror and understood, why the guy was staring at her so much - obviously, she had scratched her nose and forehead during the art class, and half of her face was covered with bright green smudges...  :approve:

I love the magazine one Astir - I bet you had loads of fun doing that!

I did a collage in November last year - used all sorts of stuff - material, old paintings, even autumn leaves.  It was great fun, only took me about 20 minutes to do and I have to say, it's pretty damn good.  It's now framed and on my wall.  grin

Some lovely stuff in this thread - keep them coming.

A couple more from me...

You do?  I love slugs.   grin

However, I found one crawling out of my salad this weekend, and whilst I looked after him/her and put him out on the grass, I love slugs on my terms.  Not in my dinner!!   :puke:

And yes, I had washed the lettuce beforehand...

Oh, this reminds me of a peach I ate last summer. It was a wonderful peach. Juicy. Sweet. Mmmm.....
After a bite or two I came to the thing that looks like nut inside peaches, plums, etc. (excuse me for this description, I don't know how it is called in English  tongue ), and I bit it accidentally. It cracked open. Suddenly, an ant literally JUMPS out of it! And, man, it was HUGE!!! I had never been freaked out by an ant in such way..

HUGE, I tell you!  :jawdrop:

How bizarre - an ant in the centre of a stone in the centre of a peach.

It happened when I was eating an ant, it tasted strange, juicier than normal and then I noticed she had unlaid eggs!!!  j/k Smiley

But once when I was small I think I ate 'iça' at some friends of my family. It's toasted ants abdomen, goes with rice and sallad, don't know. If my memory serves me well it wasn't bad!

LoL, I don't, I was joking.

The worker ants we usually see in houses are small, less than 1 cm I think, there are others even smaller, they say they appear when something's about to change, like a presage.

The ones that some people eat are kinda large, more than 2 cms, they have big bums Smiley

It's actually kinda rare you find someone that actually eats them, I heard that in the northwest it's kinda part of the folklore.

I've seen people eating random stuff, that's why I asked!  smiley

The ant that had occupied my peach was about 3cm long.

Jen - yes, that huge, but much more appealing.  tongue

That is cool Vilkate!  I love the brick wall... my eye is drawn towards that instead of the scary little girl.. cheesy

What medium did you use?  I wish everyone would just say that, because I honestly can't tell online.  Now, if I was looking at it in person, I could tell. grin

This is a painting i did in arcrylic for my Final piece in art 'college' for my first year. It's about 110cm by 50cm average. ( A small portion of the painting is cut from the image though, only the slight left side)

As you can see it's inspired by my passion for spiritual meanins in life - OBE and just other personal meanings and obviously sticking to the brief of my art project! Which was ''structures within structures'', I get my results in august.

I would appriciate it if you could leave a reply so i can see people's opinion on my work. Since you lot will probablly understand this piece more than anyone this means alot. ( I'm 17 by the way lol)

O and this painting was submitted out of my area to enter a competion to go to be exhibited in Newzeland (and a bunch of other prizes) just for some info.

Thanks, Darren!

Hey Darren. Awesome painting! I've worked in acrylics but found they dried way too quickly for my taste.




A medium that demands much patience.

What a lovely piece!

You have to know exactly what you want to paint and where you want it to go, that's for sure.   So, I would say a lot of thought goes into it before hand.  With oils, that's the great thing, you can start out with half an idea, a whole idea, or no idea and you can change your mind over and over, while your painting,  if you want. grin

I do this with acrylic, it's more versatile than you think! Also you can add other solutions to stop it drying as fast but i haven't used this.

I've come to like watercolor over both acrylic and oil.
Although I can do a lot more with oil...I hate the mess. It gets everywhere and sometimes it doesn't dry fast enough for me. Acrylic annoys me because I guess...I don't really know how to use it (I've only painted with it once).

People often mistake my watercolor paintings for acrylic though...
