Star Light Star Bright

2014 November 24

Hey friends,  happy Monday.  Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.  Mine was busy starting with a Friday night intimate wedding ceremony.  My brother got married and I was his witness.  It was a wonderful, informal ceremony yet it was beautiful.  So very happy for him and Julie!!  Saturday I finished a canvas which I had been wrestling with for a while.  I had such a hard time with this one.  The papers kept bubbling and to be honest, I wasn’t feeling it.

I’m still not happy with the angel and trying to use up the last of some of my numerous rub-ons, which I probably should have done without.  I also added some butterfly stickers to her dress, again, not so sure if I like it but it is what it is. I will have to say that because I had so much trouble with the designer papers, the background with all those painty and inky layers has wonderful texture.  I think part of the reason I was having so much trouble was that this was a large canvas – 18” x 24”.  Another problem with a larger canvas – taking decent pictures, sigh!

This canvas is CASED from Christy Tomlinson’s October Art Society Monthly Video club.   It’s hard to see the mini lights in the picture but when turned on, it looks awesome.  Tiny enough to give the impression of twinkling stars.

The mini lights are battery operated and taped with cloth bandage strips on the back of the canvas.  Here’s another picture taken with my phone:

I need to get back to painting portraits and faces because I can definitely tell that it’s been a while.

Other than that, the crazy holiday rush has commenced.  I still need to get a few grocery items which I plan on doing either super duper early Wednesday morning or super duper late tonight or tomorrow night.  So not looking forward to that Sad smile.

That’s it for me gang, have a wonderful day and be careful – traffic is crazy already!

    I'm in agreement with you, Micki.  She isn't one of your best figures, but she's not too bad.  And her face is beautiful. Maybe it's that vibrant blonde hair?!  Wonderful, rich colors and cool lights!  Good Luck with getting your holiday act together.  I asked Mr Wonderful what I needed to do and it sounds like just grace the table with my presence {HA}!  p.s. so happy to read that your brother found Julie!

    I LOVE the BG and your colors!  The angel is pretty and I honestly think you are your own worst critic!  I LOVE it!
