I have been experimenting with different painting techniques. I love the look of lots of layers of paint, so I tried this new style of painting with a little more detail and lots of layering. It takes a bit longer than my usual cutesy folk art, but I like it. I didn't use crackle on it, but it still has an aged look. I am not sure yet if I will be selling this one because I love the way it looks in an antique look frame that fits it's 12x16 size. Tell me what you think? I am thinking of doing a Frida one with this style next.
Geez, I really need to stop painting and start working on getting ready for my son's graduation party this Saturday. We are having a combo party along with three of his close friends. I think 250 invitations went out on Facebook. I should be cleaning or something! I just hope and pray it doesn't rain because there is not enough room in my home for all those people. There is plenty of room outside, but it has been raining all week so I can't do anything out there yet~
I am a self taught artist who has always enjoyed creating anything from a flower garden to the perfect meal. Now that my children, (ages 23, 26, and 27) are all grown up, I have more time to create! I also work 4 days a week during the school year with special needs preschoolers--which I dearly love! The children in my life inspire many of my paintings.
