This is an acrylic pouring painting painted with the leftover paint from my expressionist horse painting! I have made a video I will upload to my youtube channel soon. The painting is poured but the red on top is dripped. I felt like it needed the extra splash of bright red. What do you think of the title "Covered by the Blood"?
This was a totally enjoyable painting to create! I hope you will enjoy it. I need to add it to my shop soon and also the expressionist horse painting! If you are interested let me know!
Well my husband Gary and I had an interesting time trying to record a video of Gary singing and playing his guitar to a short prayer chorus to go with my owl painting. I had lightly taped the watercolor painted on Yupo paper to a canvas so we could hang it on the wall while Gary was singing.
After he gave a short introduction he started to sing the song and the painting fell off the canvas so we had to start over. We decided to post the BLOOPER VIDEO BELOW to my personal facebook page and found that a lot of people seemed to enjoy seeing the goofy blooper.
I am not sure exactly why but it seems that the best place for me to post anything online so far is my personal Facebook page but not my fan page since the Algorithm has changed on Facebook.
Life has gotten busy with friends, family and outings with my hubby lately and I need to catch up on posting Instagram photos of my paintings.
If you are interested in purchasing a painting don't forget to pick one from my shop.
To watch our kooky blooper take a look at the video below and tell me what you think in the comments.
To give you a more unique experience with my paintings I have been moved to write a short chorus for each of various paintings as they come to me. My husband Gary or I will sing the song with guitar of keyboard accompaniment on a video. When someone purchases a painting they will also have the option of receiving a download of the video to go with your painting! Look in my shop to purchase a painting with an encouraging chorus to go with it. Here is an example of the first one we have done. I have provided this one for public viewing as an example but future choruses will be for the person purchasing the painting only unless they would like to share it.
New expressionist acrylic painting of a wild horse. The painting is done in vibrant colors and is painted on canvas. Hope you enjoy it!
I hope you enjoy this newest of my paintings of an eagle flying in a colorful sky with red tulips in the foreground. There are mountains and trees below. I have very much enjoyed painting this. This painting has been a challenge and has been around awhile but I recently decided to add the eagle and red tulips. Then feeling ambitious I also added red and more color to the sky. I think it is representative of my life recently becoming more colorful. I am feeling a new excitement to live life since I have been able to re-focus on painting and creating more art.
Hoping you will enjoy and check out these 2 new acrylic paintings painted this week that I have added to my shop! They were both started with a putty knife and acrylic paint in shades of red and yellows. Later blues and whites were added. The first one was originally inspired by painting out frustrations about all the fires in California and Washington, especially the Carr fire in Redding California where I used to live and where some people I know have lost their homes. However I didn't like the outcome of the painting so added the lighter colors to it and the orange sun. Be sure to check out my shop! There is a wide variety of paintings including acrylic art, gouache, watercolors, and other media.
Ok here's my most recent 16x20 acrylic painting of an orange sun and sunset. It started out looking like a fire which was painted with a large putty knife. I think it is because I had been affected by the Carr fire in Redding where we used to live. Some of our friends were affected and a number of people we know lost their homes. However I didn't feel to leave the painting looking like a fire so I added lighter pastel colors and some white glazing. It still needed the bright orange sun and now I am much more comfortable with it.
Blooper! Or do you call it that on a website blog? Ok I tried to make a link on the words "acrylic painting of an orange sun and sunset" but somehow the link linked the whole paragraph. I am hoping to learn to do this better next time but don't know how to change it yet as I am still learning.
I hope you enjoyed this painting. It is in my shop if you are ever interested in purchasing it or any of my other wall art and paintings for sale. Most are the original paintings but there are also some prints. I also have prints and other items for sale on Fine Art America.
Here is my first testimonial video from Dave Chandoo, someone who bought a piece of my art who lives locally so I went to his house to do the video. Then my husband Gary, Dave and I went out to dinner at a yummy mexican restaurant.
The angel painting Dave bought is a painting of the Angel of the Lord watching over the universe. If you are interested in the painting process the background is poured and the foreground is painted on over the acrylic pour after it dried.
Although I have had a lot of clients in the past from previous sales it has been hard to be able to contact them because of rules on the sites I have sold off of it is only now that I am asking anyone to share. If you have purchased a painting from me in the past or from a site I have sold from please contact me if you are able to share a short testimonial video with the art piece and what you like about it to put on my website. I would greatly appreciate your help! My email is firstname.lastname@example.org or you may also contact me via facebook at my Facebook page Jane Schleppenbach Art.
Ok here is my first art demo. It is of a painting I have reworked using acrylic pour. After it dried I decided to add some lighter paint to add more contrast. It came out as a stalactite stalagmite painting. I'm hoping to improve my video making skills over time and was hoping to speed it up but when I put it to 1.5 in the program I don't think it sped up :( but I am determined to learn. Here is the finished painting! The picture has some glare on it because of the glossy finish. The top part dark parts are actually darker.
Welcome to my art blog! My name is Jane Schleppenbach. I would like to share with you and encourage you in your own creativity as I share my journey with you. I have taken many college art classes and also learn from videos, magazines and my own experimentation. Hopefully, we can share each other's experiences in art and creativity for mutual encouragement. I have been painting for many years and have sold a lot of my work online, at art fairs and to private parties across the US and some overseas but am always open to positive improvement and love to explore new areas. I am really looking forward to interact with you here and get to know you. Feel free to comment!
