Well ladies, I really think I need to have my head examined - I have spent the day convincing myself that I should relax while the school holidays are on (kiddies go back to school on Monday) and therefore I should put the business accounting on hold until next week - so once again, another painting is done - mind you, I was only supposed to draw the design out (ONLY) on the canvas - then I told myself I will only paint the face (do all the detailed work) - and...this is where the shrink should step in... from that point on, it just snow-balled - so here we have it - another painting completed instead of GST work!!!
Mixed media again - with lots and lots of texture - I returned to my dragonflies and had to put them into this painting - lots of gold filigree texture on the dragonflies and then I have textured the whole painting (apart from the face) in little squares.
Then the final touch, heaps of gloss varnish - she is drying now.
I also had to add this drawing my little daughter Maya drew while I was painting - we were both sitting at the kitchen table, listening to music and having fun. She is nearly 7 years old and madly in love with horses - my little artist!
Good night and sweet dreams to all - I will see all your lovely work tomorrow morning, me and my trusty coffee togeher - HUGZ Val xxoo
