It has been some time since my last post.

This summer has been wonderful, but it is passing by way too fast.

Hope your summer has been delightful too!

Here are couple of my new experimental bubble paintings, watercolor on 140# cold press watercolor paper.

The initial process involved mixing my professional grade watercolor paints with home made bubble soap.

Then I began blowing bubbles with the paint mixtures, capturing them on my watercolor paper.

From there I pulled the paintings together with watercolor glazes, direct painting,  finishing with opaque white watercolor paint.

There we so much fun to create!

Exploring and Expanding:

“Dreamscape” is painted with traditional watercolor and a product new to me called “Brusho Crystal Colours”.

This is also the first time I have used an UV varnish spray on a watercolor.

Worked great!

Something New

Posted by Lynda Hoffman-Snodgrass on February 3, 2019 | No Comments

For years people have asked me if my paintings were available as scarves or fabric to sew. I looked into it and producing scarves or printed fabric to resell is expensive so I never went ahead with it. Last winter I was the Featured Artist at Art & Soul Gallery, when a lady inquired if one of my paintings was available as fabric. I told her no, but if she had any suggestions of fabric companies to please let me know. She told me about a print on demand fabric company called Spoonflower. Looking into it I found this company to have a great reputation and a lovely variety of fabrics to choose from. Today I am happy to be able to say, ” YES! I do have artworks that have been adapted for fabric designs available at Spoonflower.”
