Artistic epiphany- my console table

Artists are extremely creative in nature.


Happy Monday!

Just the other day, I was sitting and pondering regarding my artwork. Everyone makes artwork on canvases and wood panels. I wanted to convert my artwork into something unique which stands out in the crowd.

I had a beautiful piece of artwork, ‘Iris’, which I had painted with alcohol inks a year back. It was on a panel 12 x 40 inches and extremely heavy to mount or frame. But it was a beautiful piece! It was a pity that for the last one year it has been sitting in a corner in my studio.

Artists are extremely creative in nature. We love to experiment with mediums, substrates and mixed media. Why not convert our artworks into practical pieces of furniture? There are numerous ways you can convert your artwork into a beautiful piece. I resined my artwork to give it some pizzaz. It looks absolutely beautiful with alcohol inks as the ink is so vibrant in color. After it had time to cure, I bought some cute pin legs online and converted my artwork into a beautiful and unique console table. Now it is proudly sitting in my home and it is truly a piece of art.

Visit my Instagram @umbreenhasanfineart to have a look at the video. I cannot wait to convert a small marble top coffee side table into an ocean inspired artwork after the holidays! The possibilities are endless: cheeseboards, coffee tables, serving trays.

Stay tuned for a video of the process and some of these pieces which I will be making soon for commissions.

Until next time.....
