My first canvas....


I have always wanted to do a canvas and I found one in a closet I cleaned out and just started playing...This one has a ton of layers and was really fun to do...I started with plaster and then crackle and wood gel...some paint and then I drew and painted the girl...Added embellishments and gel medium and it is done. I am happy with it and I like the sentiment. I am really enjoying yellows and oranges lately too. Looking for the sunshine! I could get into this!

You can make anything so beautiful! I love the bright colors your using. They make me feel happy! I heard orange was "the" color for 2009. It has the quality to make people happy during rough times?? It works for me.
