"RED BUDS" ORIGINAL PAPER CAST MIXED MEDIA PAINTING OF ACORNS © SAUNDRA LANE GALLOWAY

"Red Buds"
5"x5" image size
10"x10" finished size
paper cast mixed media
SOLD (thanks Wendy!)

Found a bit of time to complete this fun contemporary take on acorns and their little bud balls.  The acorns are paper cast painted with oil and the beads are some ephemera I found at my local craft store.  The substrate on this is 300lb watercolor paper and stamped with my original oak leaf stamps for a rather abstract background that just gives you enough of a feeling to know it is among the tree leaves!  Put it all together and you have a contemporary take on acorns.  FUN DOINS! PS...I think I'm going to make this my Christmas Card...kill two birds with one stone kind of thing...:)

My little baby in Omaha's latest is he can sit in his boppo (I think it is called that) at the tender age of 3.75 mos!  He is very independent, and mom had to hold her hand very near by to take this pic as he still bobs about in the head...but he LOVES his boppo...and I'm just this minute thinking I may try to paint this...too adorable...stay tuned on which one is second in my Christmas paintings of Paxton series!


HAPPY CREATING!

Love the pretty and Christmasy acorns, Saundra. I love the way your mind works! By the way, a lady at my work loves the calla lilies (first time I've had someone besides family over to notice all the art on my walls). I love how our grandbabies morph into our babies. LOL I always say "my baby" too when referring to any one of them. They grow up so danged fast, don't they? Paxton looks like such a big boy sitting in his chair!!! And he does indeed have that Gerber baby mouth!

Thanks Sherry! I love to hear what people think of my work in person! I sure have enjoyed playing with acorns of late!! HA...I didn't think about the morphing until you mentioned it, but you are right! HA...I sure love him!...
