Such an exciting day, we had a little day trip to deliver my painting to the Summer exhibition I can't begin to expalin how it feels... I'm just pleased with myself for actually doing it!
So, I wanted to explain too that my painting has elements of Maoleidigh and I didn't follow a photograph exactly. Above is so typically her on a mission and very busy, the chances of capturing her still is near impossible and you might notice her hair is so much longer then the other inspirational photo. Below are her favourite boots, I took a photo to show them, although she is wearing them above they are a blur!!! These were my inspiration and her dress is made up, as is the lace trims.
Here Maoleidigh is acting as art critic (forgive the mess in the background). I went for a simple wood frame and managed to get it to fit! With strong fabric tape at the back, it's so tricky to photograph. If this were to stay at home I probably wood have left it unglazed and added a batton on the back to make it float from the wall.
Thank you for stopping by and for your encouragement, fingers crossed it will get picked. I now have my empty easel eager for more splashes tee hee, but not sure when I'll get the chance for a little while! :) But I have some old artwork I can post if you're interested. BiG HuGs Kim and Maoleidigh :)
