I can hardly believe the holiday season is here.....(I think I'm in denial) I feel like summer just ended yesterday. I've been painting so many new pendant designs and having a lot of fun with them.
While I've painted a couple of glass and sand dollar pendants, I've mostly been running a muck with painted wooden pendants. They remind me very much of painting on larger pieces of wood, when I was creating welcome plaques, only these of course, are small wearable miniature pieces of art.
It is a surface that allows me to get really creative and try new things I might not have tried jumping into before. Some are impressionist in style like the one above, while others are contemporary or even zen.
I've added colored necklaces to some of my pendants to coordinate with their colors. This really makes the colors pop out like the yellow contemporary garden above.
This is the character for "Eternity" and I'm calling this one a zen pendant. I've made 2 so far but hope to create more in upcoming weeks.
Some of the necklaces, like the one above, have silver or gray beads added to them to create lots of sparkle and shine and give the piece extra dimention.
These contemporary white poppies are set against a heavily textured background, a technique I was experimenting with that I will definately repeat in the future.
I hope you've enjoyed the latest round of pendant creations, I'll be back later this week to show my latest canvas painting. These pieces are on my ETSY site: http://www.artfulcreations.etsy.com/ .
