View Full Version : My new painting

03-20-2013, 07:57 AM
My beloved daughter in laws 30th birthday next week and I had no idea what to get her.
So I painted her a picture..... Light was crappy when I took the photo - and well it was nearly midnight when I finished it :)


And bought her this amazing sort of felted/knitted necklace scarfy thing.
And I'm hitting the bookshop tomorrow to find her a great book on Australian native fauna - insects, frogs, snakes, marsupials etc - which she loves :yes:

Wow! Is this textured, or are you really good at making things look 3D? Awesome work.

Very nice! At first I thought you glued the kites on because they look like they're sticking out a little bit. But are they painted on? Awesome work!

I was wondering too. The little people look three dimensional to me!
Very nice!

Thank you.

Kites and church cross are made from Polymer Clay, kite tails from ribbon

'People' are Worry Dolls from Guatemala.

I like the 3D effect and plan to play around with it a bit more :icon_wink:

They reminded me of worry dolls! But I had forgotten what they were called. I wish I hadn't. I would have looked so smart! :)

That 3D effect is definitely cool.

I'm not an art expert but I know what I like and I think...so far..your paintings are very good..I like the colors and randomness of them. Wish I could afford one.
