As the new year starts, I felt like this is a good theme.....face to the sun, also the title of my painting. My mom fell in love with it while she was here and so I sent it home with her, where she needs a little sunshine. We so enjoyed her visit and she returned home on Thursday.
The background the girl is painted is a watercolor paper background I have had around for a while and when she turned out so well, I mounted it on a painted canvas and added a few embellishments.
I've been doing some scrapping this weekend and starting a project to submit for the next Sew Somerset. Still have to finish up another mixed media painting that I was working on while my mom was visiting. I've got some new layouts to share later this week.
I'm becoming a student again for a while, and it feels great.....I'm taking an online painting class - Mixed Media with the Girls by Wyanne and DJ Pettit's class that starts in the morning - Memories and Manipulations. I have been feeling like I want to mix it up a bit, you know how your work can become stale if you don't keep growing? So on that track right now.
Happy New Year to you all and I just want to say how thankful I am for your comments and visits. Bring it on 2010.....I'm ready to change and grow.
