It has been SO great getting back to work a little bit between house hunting!  I sat down yesterday and created this fun sunflower portrait with whimsical ribbons of the black and white weaving through...if you look closely you can also see it in a spiral in the center of the sunflower.  This piece is what I created on top of the "failed" painting from the other day.  The fun part of this is all the texture!!  To cover the previous work (which someone wanted to buy about 10 minutes too late as I'd covered it already!) I painted it with a layer of gesso...covered that with a layer of molding paste, and another layer of gesso...The English Oak sides fit perfectly with the subject matter (which MAY have been the reason I decided to do one more sunflower before the season ends).

Not to let much moss grow on my easel I'm already at work on a new aspen piece using mainly blue and orange in the background.  As we speak I'm busy with the addition of papers...and having a ball!!  


HAPPY CREATING!

Oh, the blue and orange one really sings! I can't wait to see what you do with that one.

Told you that last piece was rather intriguing despite your thoughts! (Why is it no one EVER listens to me???? LOL) At any rate, this is a gorgeous piece too and I am excited to see where your new piece is going as well.

New baby finally arrived early evening yesterday, Saundra. You can see her on my blog...
