This is a place where I share my art and thoughts of the day!

This is the gift I finished last night for my SIL.

Merry Christmas everybody!

These are close ups of a painting and flower pressing I did earlier in the year. I sewed on the ARTCHIX fabric transfers and then pressed the flowers with my self invented pressing technique. When those two processes were finished I stretched my muslin onto my canvas stilts, then began my painting with scrylics and textured paint. I used some stone grit paint I bought at the local doll house store for the stones. So they really look and actually feel like stones too. Then I swirled in the sky. Last night I finally added the dropping or bleeding fussia for some pop out zing. Hope Marcia like the painting. It's pretty large 20x 26' "s. She said she wanted it last time she was at my house viewing my paintings. She is one of my only art fans in the family, so she gets well rewarded! I am actually gifting 3 family members with paintings this year for Christmas, something I have basically never done before.
