Toni’s Tuesday Tome-lapse Video:) Yellow Rose Vases and Bowls

17 Aug

“You can never have enough of a good thing, especially if you’re an artist.”

~Toni Armenta Andrukaitis


Sometimes, I need a little nudge to inspire me to go up to my studio and paint. My friend Helene had asked me last week if I would kindly paint a small bowl with roses to give as a gift when she goes back home to visit family and friends. Well, of course.

Just like my baking or cooking, I can’t just bake a little or cook a little. I believe in quantity and quality. If ya got the quality, ya might as well do the quantity. It took me three days to complete, but I had fun creating more masterpieces to share with friends. I discovered years ago that the glass paint requires at least two layers of paint, and each layer requires drying time in between. And, it ain’t easy to paint precisely on the same stroke as the previous layer. I can modestly say, (NOT! No modesty here) that I have mastered the magic of the simple rose on glass.

Watch the cool video, only 25 seconds….

The bowls and small vases.
Taller cylinder vases. I love these for gifts with a dozen long stemmed yellow

Wow! Even I’m impressed! Did I mention that modesty is not my strongest attribute?

I haven’t done a time-lapse painting video in a while. You can tell. I’m a little rusty. (Or cadmium red medium, as we say in the trade.)

Gold Sharpie, watercolor, and a little blue chalk.

Tuesday:) Toni’s Time-lapse Painting~ Black Cat on a Pumpkin

28 Oct

“Nothing says Fall, October, and Halloween like a black cat sitting on a pumpkin.”

~Toni Armenta Andrukaitis


Well, another lazy crazy day. It’s cold and gloomy and the heat keeps kicking on. It’s Texas for goodness sakes, what’s the deal. I scrolled through a bunch of Fall ideas on Google to see what I should paint today. I try not to copy too many aspects of the ideas I find. As an artist, you can copy anything if you just plan keep it for yourself or friends and family. But, if you plan to sell your work, it needs to be mostly your original ideas and work. Mostly, I just paint for myself. Thus, I have a house filled with hundreds of pieces of artwork. Mostly original, some ideas from other artists.

Today’s time-lapse video… a notecard for Debbie. She’s always sending me beautiful Hallmark cards, so I’m sending her a Tonimark card, with matching envelope, of course.

While I had the paint out, I figured I’d paint another pumpkin sans black cat, just for fun.

“What good is an idea if it remains an idea? Try. Experiment. Iterate. Fail. Try again. Change the world.”

I was going through a mess of art messes yesterday, in an attempt to straighten up my work table upstairs and get some ideas on what to paint today. I had seen a cool painting on Pinterest a while back and thought I’d use the idea. An experiment. I’m not sure how they did their painting, but now I now how not to do it. But, it was a fun attempt.

Spray paint… open window, ceiling fan, and a mask. Stinky up there. I should have done the spraying outside, but it’s dark out. Maybe I should do some plein air painting next time. Live and learn.

First I did a large watercolor background, adding just a touch of acrylic to spruce up the trees. The paper was very large and the watercolor made it buckle up a bit. The good part is, I painted one ahead of time so it could dry before I did the time-lapse video. (Sometimes two steps and drying time are necessary for one project,) So, I have one with the spray painted black background and one without.

I thought a soft spray of black paint would let some of the background show through, and it did, but the jury is still out if I like this concept.

Well. I experimented… now… to change the world.
