It's Finished!



Here is my next painting.  Not sure why it looks washed out a bit on the right side. . .it is 24 x 25 acrylic on hardboard with a crackle medium undercoating before painting. Odd size I know, but it's that size, because that is how big the guy at Home Depot cut it.  I had asked to have the board cut in half. . .the other one is not square either. That's okay. . .I like it. These are totally not real plants or birds. . .felt very creative so I invented my own. 

I love that crackle finish!!!!! 

Now onto the next painting.  I am going to try my hand at more of a painting collage with maybe some other things attached to it. Onward and upward! Might use the crackle finish again. . .but maybe not.

I do have a smaller canvas 12 x 12 all crackled and ready to go too and I might do that one first.  Square. . .I am attracted to square art at the moment.

  1. Sherry!!! This is wonderful. It reminds me of the "tree of life" crewel works that we used to embroider. Been a long time since I did one of those. This is so colorful and the movement combined with your sense of design is fantastic. Great job!!!!

  4. Oh Gosh Amy thanks so much for saying that! It is so good to be back working on traditional art. It really feels so much more natural and rewarding than my digital work. I am so glad I finally took the chance and did it.
