Mixed Media Monday - Inspirational Words
This week on Mixed Media Monday, we have a new guest host, Michelle. Michelle has challenged us to use an inspriational word in our artwork. I've been doing so much acrylic work lately, I felt like a change of pace, and opted for a water colour painting. I think a lot of people associate "flight" words with their art - in that they aspire to "take flight" with their creativity. That's why I chose the word "soar" for my painting, which will hang over my desk. The piece is done on water colour paper, in water colour paints. The letters and stars are chipboard. I scanned the painting because they never photograph terribly well behind glass, and have also put up a picture to give you an idea of how it looks in the frame. The painting is approximately 13x18 cms or 5.5x7.5 inches. The frame is one I picked up in a charity shop for a couple of dollars.
