a long canvases...
no watering requiring!!
here's the steps...



gesso..


color, i dragged the color with the credit card.....


green for grass....
again i used the credit card...
no watering required!!!


stamped flowers with cardboard tube....


titan buff in flowers...
i thought i was going to leave it at this point..
but it needed color...


i started with stabile color pencils....


but i didn't like the colors...
needed more color, back to acrylics...


needed some texture in the background....
found this in my moms basement, 
thought it would make a great texture...
still not sure what it is for!!!


dragged black around the edges, i just like the way it looks!!!


some writing in the painting....



and done.....

Happy Spring!!!

  11. Love, love, love this! My medium was always paper...scrapbooking. I am now, this year, learning about paints...my goal is to get some of my work on my bare walls. I can be very timid when I start a piece but with inspiration from people like you I am pushing myself along...trying new things and enjoying the process! Thanks for sharing!

  13. Flower gardening has turned out to be broadly renowned as of late. Flower gardening is basic and sensibly low-estimated. It should be possible for various purposes as a side interest, for embellishing purposes, or even as a calling

  14. A flower garden is the place where flowers are grown in large quantities for decorative purposes. It is very important to maintain the flowers to bloom throughout the year by consistently monitoring the sequence of the flowers planted.
