Layers, and layers


This started out as a watercolor on yupo background.  Then I rolled it with acrylic. 
Then I stamped it and used stencils
It was a fun project and I got to use one of my ho-hum backgrounds and turn it into something.


This gives you a peak at the original background
Work has been so crazy lately and my best friend has been in hospice so there has't been much time for art.  Sadly, she lost her battle a couple of days ago.  Not an art friend but one that I shared just about everything else with.  It will be lonely without her, for sure.
Wishing everyone a Happy PPF and treasure every moment.

  2. Susan the layers of art on this piece are exciting,and thinking of layers reminds of life itself! My best friend, Patty, died three years ago and I miss her so much! I keep her spirit alive by telling people about her, reliving my memories of her that way! I'm sad for your loss too! :-(

  8. You make the most beautiful backgrounds. I love the gold streak. I think it elevates it to something regal, like a fine piece of Egyptian art would look now-all cleaned up and just magnificent. I saw the treasures from King Tuts tomb once and they didn't look as old as they were. The gold and the rich colors were amazing. I was reminded of them seeing your piece- although the style is of course very different. Hugs-Erika
