Between the Skies

Between the Skies by Karen Gadient, 2015

It’s “FingerPaintingFriday” again! This one was created with pearlescent watercolor as the base with some regular watercolor on top. I used my fingernails as much as my fingertips, which I think lends a nice effect. To keep the lines clean, I wiped off the nail between scrapesโ€•which also helped when finally scrubbing my nails clean when I was done!

Enjoy your weekend, friends. ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. my finger painting supplies have arrived…I’ll be opening the box tomorrow ๐Ÿ™‚ then the fun begins ๐Ÿ™‚ love your art ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I’ve looked at some abstract artwork and became confused which then lead to some sort of stranger anger. I can’t say I understand this piece fully, but I can find my own interpretation instead of slipping into confusion. From the pieces I have viewed, I enjoy that relatable aspect of your work. I don’t really know how to quantify the difference between relatable and confusing abstract art, seemse like something that’s hard to quantify.

    • I appreciate your thoughtful comment. It really is hard to quantify. I know it took me years to appreciate abstract art, even having abstract artists as parents–and yet I’m now enjoying creating it. For me, it often expresses the senses, specifically sound. Your comment has me thinking about how to better describe my process to others. Thank you.

  3. I like this, it feels nautical ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Boy, my finger painting in kindergarten never looked this good!

  5. This is dream like to me, could be walking through a rainbow waterfall, possibly in a parallel universe where everything is cool and serene. Maybe you should look at this when your really hot weather kicks in, you never know, it might subconsciously help to keep you cool?! ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Gorgeous. Just gorgeous.
