I've been pretty busy around here, but I've had time to do what I enjoy a LOT--painting. So here's my first painting of the year (but not the last!)
I started out by collaging book pages on to a wood surface--
and then I forgot to take a picture of what my next step was, but basically I sketched in my design--which was elephants--here it is partially done (when I remembered to take a picture)
I added some texture on the ears with some molding paste--love this technique--
…..and I finished it with some collage (the ground and sun) with a vintage map--
really happy with these 2--one of my favorite subjects to paint!
