Spring Wind

This is a piece I did mostly last Summer.It's 7x 23 or 27 inches...something weird like that. I have a ton of Masonite board, because lets face it--this is the beginning of my hoarding career, and this piece was done on a scrap of that board. I really love long compositions whether vertical or horizontal. So, I took this random sized board and painted a piece for my "Boy Meets Girl" Series. This was done in acrylic.

I drew the piece out on Reeves paper, scanned it into the computer, printed it on toned paper and then mounted it to the board with Matte Gel Medium (which dries clear). The hard thing about this piece was the size. Because it's so awkward scanning has been a dilemma. I haven't been able to find a scanner big enough to scan the entire piece, and I am not the best photographer :/

But scanning worries are over because I learned that Photoshop has this awesome photomerge feature. So I scanned my painting in half and then the other. Then I put them both in Photoshop, use the feature and it automatically matches and aligns the piece together.

Thank you Photoshop, you are pretty amazing!

Also, I got into the Wonderland Boutique! Yay! It is in Alpine at the old Peppermint Place on June 6th and 7th from 10 am to 8 pm. This is going to be one of the pieces I'm selling prints for there so you should come check it out! I will update with more information as it gets closer and I find out all the details :)
