...hello all you lovely talented ladies! Hope you are all well!
Yesterday was an unseasonably hot day, it reached 30C and today it is only 17C - but that is Melbourne - totally shocking unpredictable weather - so I spent the balmy hot day painting while the kids ran around the backyard in their summer clothes - today, we are all indoors with the heating going LOL!
School holidays start mid next week and this little painting shows a mommy owl spending time with her little chick! That will be me over the next two weeks, spending time with my two kids, movies, play dates, shopping, toys, playing and relaxing!
This painting is done on a canvas stretched over a wooden frame - 25cm x 30cm - it is done in so many layers - heaps of tissue paper glued over the entire painting, then painted again, with colours coming trough the various layers - I love the way it looks as it is very textured and I made a downright mess on my kitchen table creating it. Lots of gold filigree paint emphasised the wings of the owls and the flowers, as well as the log they are standing on - I think it is finished - I think all I need to do now is layer it in varnish, but I may decide to add more things to it tomorrow - remains to be seen.
I look forward to turning this painting into a little wearable art pendant - the colours should come through nicely I believe.
Anyway, must run now, Master 10 has a play date today, while Miss 7 will want to spend some "mother/daughter" time with me, don't know what she has planned, but it should be fun.
Cheers all, Val xoxoxoxo
