Well my desk/table doesn't look much different then last week, just a bigger version of the same.
I took the plunge, this large canvas has been very intimidating to me.
My hubby said, "just paint over it if you don't like" which sounds fine and good
but I hate redoing!
Just to clarify because I have had lots of comments and it makes my hubby look bad, lol!
To encourage me to start he said, "just paint over it if you don't like it", not after I had finished.
I love her, sure there are a few things that I would do differently but I would not redo for sure!
Here she is hanging on the living room wall.
I am sure over the weeks I will probably take her down and add a few touches here and there.
I wanted the background to look somewhat like fire.
To me dance is all about passion and releasing that burning passion within the dancer.
I love that anything goes with mixed media so I added pearls to her hair and bodice and
the roses, from Stampin Up, for her strap.
For the skirt I used modeling paste which gives it a nice 3 dimensional feel.
This was seriously so hard for me to do, the process pushed me past my limits for sure.
It is much easier to paint abstract, when you paint people they have to look real.
Thanks for stopping by, I loved looking at all the desks from around the world; so cool.
