Hard to see, but the elephant has some brownish accents in the cracks and crevices.
Another in my JUST FOR FUN series, this glass white elephant is graced with other glass beads and metal chain. 16" in length with the apx. 3/4" elephant pendant hanging down. A little turquoise glass bead at the back makes it stylish and FUN from front to back!
The end of this month is my wonderful mother's 75th BD, and she made a request of me...well, actually a couple...One was another horse like the "Soul of the Horse" WHICH I did, and the other was a mostly turquoise necklace like my JUST FOR FUN series...and, I did that too...Hopefully she will like it...but, SHHHHH...it's a secret! :)
I added a special little bit of personalization...note the JOY bead that will hang down the back...that's her name! :)
I have been VERY busy painting of late as well...REALLY enjoying my mixed media pieces between the ETSY'S...Here is a beginning that will end up a section of pine tree...FUN!
I've got a couple fun things that will happen at one time or another; WHEN the inspiration hits...The barn is a co-worker of my husbands father's barn I believe that is how it goes...I love the contrast of the red with the snow!! I believe this is somewhere in Michigan...
and, I thought this little bird; that I've learned may be a JUNCO was outside my door last snow we had...I love his little self!
SO, busy bee days...JUST THE WAY I LIKE EM!!
"MOUNTAIN SUNFLOWER" ORIGINAL MIXED MEDIA MOUNTAIN LANDSCAPE WITH SUNFLOWER © SAUNDRA LANE GALLOWAY
Though the subject matter is this mountain sunflower, the landscape behind gives you the beauty of it's surroundings! "Mountain Sunflower" is painted in oil over acrylic and acid free paper with a bit of texture in the mountains and foreground. Painted on a cradled panel with stained sides, this piece of mountain beauty is ready to hang, or, it's unique depth will allow for sitting on a shelf! "Mountain Sunflower" will be ready for shipping on or about March 14, 2014 when it is fully dry. Oranges and Yellows tend to be the slowest drying; or more accurately, oxidizing, so shipping is a bit further out than most others with different colors.
This painting was fun, but a challenge. I enjoy VERY MUCH putting in the abstract qualities that I do; using paper and texture and paint to weave in something that reads; in THIS case as landscape, but also works as abstract! I used texture in the mountains and in the foreground in spots, and painted in the sunflower with oil. The end result is fun, but sometimes there is a bit of reworking and removing of parts that don't work well, and that can be a bit of a challenge. My motto is NEVER BE AFRAID to eliminate what isn't working...if it is the ENTIRE painting, there are lessons learned, but don't keep something just because it took some time to do!
Last week I sold Baby G...the collector got to choose the frame color. In this case it was the soft white that was a part of the giraffe baby background color. I think she made a good choice!!
SOLD 2/26/2014...THANKS Barbara!
