Inspired By — Alisa Burke

Painting on raw canvas, inspired by Alisa Burke.  Going to make some hand made canvas to make a pouffe of my own, but more like this in shape with my own colorways.  For the studio, to rest my feet upon, after painting on raw canvas for several hours.  I love poufs, pouffe’s and all manner of footstools, toadstools and the like…Day one fabric one.  We will see what shows up tomorrow.


It started here and then followed…

    I think this is such an awesome project, Corrine! I love “bright and happy,” and these colors and patterns certainly give that to me!

    I feel the energy from this canvas. It’s going to make a great foot stool.

    This is terrific and has given me ideas. I saw this late last night and then got lost in Alisa’s blog which I had forgotten about so thanks for the link again.

    I love these progression photos. A pouffe eh? Sounds rather gay to me, but gay is good:-)

    I just love all the colors and movement in this. Very joyful! Can’t wait to see where you go with it!

    wow! love all the warmth, layers and depths. And to make something for yourself! I find I give my art away like mad. I go into “make” mode and never know where it will end up. So I’m not attached. I need to make some things I want to keep. Might be just the thing to get me back in the studio. Always a joy to stop by your place in cyber space!
