I was not happy with the overkill of screws on the backing,
nevertheless the new owner didn't mind,
all she saw was perfection!
So with the backings for 'Cockatoo Floral Abstract'
and 'Dolphins Play' I focused on getting a tidier outcome.
It always helps to pre-drill the holes and have
the right sized screws!
Cockatoo Floral Abstract painting has also been signed
and dated on the back of the canvas,
unfortunately I did not have
my memory card in my camera when I took the photo!
All in all,
it takes about 15 hours to complete my artwork,
That doesn't include drying time - approximately 4 days
(Paint and Resin)
2 - 3 hours to apply resin coats,
(approximately 1 hour per coat).
It takes about an hour to cut the backing
and fix it to the back of the canvas.
All pieces are sealed around the edges with clear silicon, giving each peace a tidy finish.
'Valley of Dreams'
I like the idea of creating backgrounds
with the Acrylic Pouring Technique!
It's always a surprise!
You can have an idea, picture the way you would
like it to turn out and if it turns out
the way you had imagined, well then that is a bonus!
My pourings never turn out the way I see them in my mind,
but that's ok, because I can still work with them.
My plan for this one is to add a Rainbow Lorikeet to it!
But first I would like to finish 'Songs of Italy'
I am experimenting with a different technique,
playing around with colour, light and reflection
and ensuring that I am applying enough
paint of my canvas!
Last but not least! 'Dolphins Play'
An experiment with not the best outcome!
With this piece I added Pigment Powder to my resin,
unfortunately it went places I didn't want it to be.
That's ok, lesson learnt!
It depends on how much light is on the painting
to how much of the pigment can be seen.

I am sure my granddaughter with still
be happy with it!
So for now,
Stay Safe and Focus on the Good Things in Life!
