Signed, Sealed and Delivered....

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.

Wow I have to say a HUGE thank you to all who left me such wonderful encouraging comments I feel so blessed and a little overwhelmed by you all :) Here is my painting finished... (don't ever ask me that, I could have very easily continued on that piece until it was well and truely covered LOL!)

I spent a fair bit of time painting fluffy whispy white clouds in the background but they just didn't work!!! I washed them away as soon as I did them to try again and still they were not meant to be. What I really wanted was the wood grain still visible, so I followed and tinted the natural grain in differing hues of blues and orange/red.

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 :)
