This painting was started last May at the retreat. I took it with me to work on this year.
I decided to make it into a mixed media piece. I really liked it at this point but when I went to frame it, I felt the flower needed to pop out more,
so I got out my stabilo pencil and sketched around the flower.
This was my completed page. It looks fantastic in the brown frame I purchased from Michael's.
The boot and deck were painted from a photo. It was a photo of my sister's deck. She loves to shop at Goodwill or Value Village and always has lots of fun things decorating her back yard.
Another painting from a photo. Our community has a yearly garden tour. I always take my camera and I always find lots of interesting ideas for my artwork.
