Textured Flower

I thought that I would share a small piece that I just finished recently.  I took a small wood panel, 3" x 3", that had a wire hanger attached to it and I covered the panel with patching plaster.  When the plaster was completely dry I sealed the whole piece with several coats of gesso.  After that was dry I painted this really simple flower with Golden Fluid Acrylics.  I was using these flowers that grow in my garden as inspiration for this piece.  I went with a different color scheme, but I always enjoy seeing these flowers brighten up my yard each summer.  I wanted to bring a little color out this winter.  I added this to my Etsy shop which you can find by clicking on the link on the right side of my page.


I added a little more detail to this painting. 

Have a wonderful creative week,

Well, THAT is such a cool idea - I really love the idea of the plaster for all that depth - and the colors are so bold and beautiful.
AND I now realize that the pages below are from LB 2013! Great job - I love your fairy! xoxo
