SURPRISE!!! I Finally Finished a Painting!



Well, I took the advice of several of my blogger friends (Georgina for one) and finished a painting. It was buried under some laundry and I just never took the time to finish. It is painted on an old cupboard door. I collaged scrapbook papers, painted several layers in acrylics, stamped it and finished the details in ink. I've been trying to experiment with mixed media and while finishing this up, I had several new ideas pop up in my head. I need to really start experimenting and see where it leads me!


I took the photos in natural light but I think the color looks more blue in the photos than the actual painting which I think is more of a turquoise blue. The color on my acrylics said "Blue Lake" Hmmmm.....
Anyway, it measures approximately 15" by 15" and about 3/4 inch in depth

I think I will put in on EBAY and see what happens!
Oh! please stop by tomorrow....
It will be my 100th Post and I'm having my First Giveaway!
