Surrender to the Wind: Mixed Media Painting

This might be my favorite painting to date, but you've all heard that before. It's funny how attached we become to our art. Then a new shiny thing comes along and the new one is the most favorite. 

This one though - it feels like I was sharing a part of me. And that is what I've been working toward.


And After:

I love how the funky background made each flower so unique.

This was my second attempt at block letters. They are both harder and easier than you'd think. I bet practice will make a huge difference... and confidence.

I may turn this project into a class. In my opinion, it would be accessible to everyone from motivated beginners to advanced crafters. 

What do you think?

For me, I love a piece that is easy enough to do but looks wonderfully complex.

Have a GREAT weekend!
