Dragonfly



These are photos of a recent painting I did for a friend as a housewarming gift........  It is done on a 5 x 7 handstretched handmade canvas board (portrait grade) using irridescent paint, metallic paint and my ultimate favorite Glamour Dust glitter paints by Americana DecoArt.  When I was through I fly specked the entire canvas with the Glamour Dust Silver.....  the light of the camera catches the glitter but in person you see only the sparkle of the paint.....and it looks so pretty.  (The majority of artists who use glitter use WAY TOO MUCH...which IMHO ruins their entired piece.  Less is more is a definite when using glitter....at least in my book).    I found the mat on a framed photo I got at a local thrift store.....I loved the metallic edging which is open and shows the glitter here and there through the holes of the silver edging on the mat..... and the white matt was in perfect condition so I rescued it to use when the design/painting warranted this special touch....which it did with this design.    I already have another canvas primed black so that I can redo this in a pattern packet form with instructions and photos.....
