Bloomin' 4 x 4
This is my finished 4 x 4 mixed media piece for a swap on a group I belong to. The theme was Bloomin", the size was to be 4 x 4. Keeping in mind that the receiver might use the piece for a Chunky Book, we were told to leave some margin room on one side. The top picture was where I started...and thought I was done...but it totally lacked mixed media so......the bottom picture is how
it finished up. A strawberry blossom and I am sorry that the "hanging from the bottom enamel colored red strawberry charm on a gold chain cannot be seen. Just another to add a different "touch" to the piece. It was fun to take the painting into a different aspect of art. I used quite a few different elements to add texture, movement, dimension and some feathers from one of Ely's artistic suppliers....her birds.
