Filomena de Andrade Booth Fine Art Paintings

I never worried too much about dumping my dirty acrylic rinse water down the drain until we purchased a home with a septic system.  I asked our septic guy if it was safe to discard it down the drain and he wasn't sure that would be a very good idea.  I did some searching online and came across some methods that involve allowing the water to evaporate and then straining the sludge through a nylon stocking.  That would never work for me!  I paint often and use lots of water...it would take forever to evaporate, not to mention all the buckets sitting around in my studio.  Other methods involve pouring the water into a bucketful of sand and letting it evaporate. 
Again, not a useful idea for me.

I found that Golden Paints has the very best, ecologically friendly solution for waste water disposal.  

 I don't use the PH test papers anymore,  because I have learned that 1 tablespoon of the Hydrated Lime and Aluminum Sulfate is enough to clear a big Lowes bucketful of waste water.  It's amazing to watch the sediments coagulate and settle to the bottom of the bucket and the clean water rise to the top...almost like magic!  After straining the sediment through the 12 cup coffee filters, I pour out the clean water on a plant that lives outside my studio door.  I think it likes the extra boost of fertilizer!

Here are a couple of pictures of my own "disposal station". 



If you like this tip, please share it with your artist friends and let me know if this works for you!

The Best Paint Palette for Acrylics

It's taken me many years to find the perfect palette for acrylic paints, and believe me, I think I've tried them all.  I like to be able to have enough space to mix my colors, so small palettes do not work for me.  I like to store my left over paints in a sealed stay-wet palette, but even that is too small to allow me enough room to "play".  Finally, after trying out different ideas, I decided to order a 24" x 30" plate glass sheet.  It works wonderfully with my acrylics, it's easy to clean and allows me plenty of space to keep my colors from intermixing, unless I want them to.  I placed a sheet of white paper under the glass to allow me to see the colors correctly.  I also like to spray water on the the paints to prevent them from drying out too fast.  Cleaning the glass is actually fun!  When I'm finished painting, I scoop up the clean paints and store them in my stay-wet palette.  After letting the paints on the palette dry out, usually overnight, I spray it with water and use a paint scraper to peel up the "skins".  Some artists like to use the skins in their work...I don't.  

Whatever you do, don't use a piece of plexi as a paint palette with acrylics! 
Acrylics are plastic and stick to plastic like glue!

I recently started making time-lapse videos as I paint.  It's fun to watch the painting develop so quickly,  when in reality it takes quite a long time and lots of thought as I make decisions and corrections.

This is the first time I ever tried doing a time lapse video showing me at work on a new painting.  It's kind of fun watching the sped up motions and seeing the painting develop in just seconds!  I would have continued videoing more, but the phone rang and interrupted my "filming".  I also didn't know how long I would be able to record my painting with my iphone, so I stopped before I could actually finish the painting. 
Anyway,  here is my little video along with an image of the painting as it sat on the easel in my studio. 
Now for the hard part...coming up with a good title for the painting!


Here is a picture of the finished painting as it sits in my studio.  I will be taking better pictures of it and uploading them to my website.

Did you know that you may purchase prints of my paintings from Fine Art America?  Ever since I started showing and selling my paintings online, I always make it a point to include a link to this wonderful site on each listing I post.  I think many people have just recently discovered FAA as the premier site to purchase prints of artwork they love, but may not be able to afford.  Just in the past 2 weeks, I have gotten several notices of sales of prints.  The company offers prints in a variety of formats and sizes...everything from canvas to framed prints on high quality paper, as well as tote bags, coffee mugs, stationery and many other items.  

Here are just a few examples of how my painting, Revelation, is presented in different formats.  I think these are great gift ideas, don't you?

It's monsoon season here in Central Florida!  Summers are usually pretty rainy, but this summer has been especially wet.  The wetlands and marshes in the area are alive with birds looking for tasty treats and in the evenings we are serenaded by a chorus of bullfrogs and peepers.  The sunsets in summer are especially stunning and a wonderful source of inspiration for many of my paintings.




I am in the process of clearing up space in my studio and home gallery for commissions coming up this fall.  This painting is just one of several paintings I am offering at greatly reduced prices.
