Sapphire Siblings by linmarie

spray paint PULL STRING ART, weather not allowing me too paint outside, so am doing a series of these paintings in my basement,, just gotta paint,,, gotta paint,, gotta paint, 2009
painted on 11″ × 14″ white glossy poster board

I am a self taught artist and have drawn and painted since I could hold crayons or a pencil in my hands..
My brain is an attic filled with treasures yet to be explored or recreated.. I am a Veteran,a wife, a mom, a grandmother, a sister, a daughter and a teacher!!! My pallet is full of life, color and energy.. I hope you will see and feel that in all of my artwork.

    I love your work? What is pull string art? Great title!

  • so sorry I missed your comment on this piece Lynn,, pull string art is
    wet medium, so for this one, it was spray paints, kept wet with clear coat
    cut a long piece of string, or yarn, twirl and wind it all over the paint, put another piece of paper over it, hold down tight with one and and pull at the bottom with the other, keeping heavy pressure on it, you can feel the string pull away underneath the weight of your hand so, then move it down gradually while still pulling the string out,,forgot, when putting the string on , leave a tail of it sticking out at the bottom for pulling..I have STILL shot of this technique will get back and add this in my description box for everyone, do not have a video camera,, wish I did, peace and love linmarie
