I finished this canvas a couple of weeks ago - it was a few days in the making, and expresses a piece of my heart... with some upcoming changes in my design focus, I really wanted something physical to look at to remind me what I want my art to be - genuine, an expression of heart, and a gift back.
Here's a picture of the canvas after the initial pencil sketch and first layer of paint - I dropped acrylic paint on the canvas and used an old library card to move the colors around. Seems a lot of my favorite techniques lately involve a library card! The canvas is 8"x12".
Here's a close-up of the quote I used... and HERE is a link to the context of the quote and Ann Voskamp's beautiful words.
These poppies are my favorites, and I do have a few to choose from! These are from Sheena Douglass's Paint Fusion line at Crafter's Companion.
The face close up... it has some 'me'-ish features... I was thankful just for the courage to paint her with acrylics!
The weeks are just flying lately!
