Hello friends! I thought I would share with you something new that I've tried. You might have heard of Christy Tomlinson? She has a class on-line called "She Art". It was a lot of fun! And this was my first canvas that I've done- taking her class. You will either like it or you won't. :) I'm a little nervous about showing you.
I named the girl in this painting, Penelope, which means-"dreamer weaver" in Greek. Which I thought was appropriate because of the words I used. I showed my husband and guess what he said? It looks more like a nightmare than a dream. Awww, so encouraging. Thanks, honey! ;)
This is a 7X14 framed canvas and the background is sewing pattern tissue paper. That was fun to use! I really enjoyed this class. Christy is a lot of fun and she is so real. Mistakes and all.
Her boots are made out of heavy upholstery material. I liked the texture of it.
Well, what do you think? It's definitely different than what I usually do, huh? I just wanted to try something new for me. And I liked it.
What are you planning for Mother's Day? Whatever it is, I hope you have a great time.
Have a blessed week, my friends.
