2 more paintings


Well, color sure is good for my soul. I am very intrigued with Pat Dews right now. Bren told me about her and I am so glad she did because she is very funny and entertaining and if you like this abstract look then she is a great one to learn from. She uses all sorts of things to make texture--grids from the non slip rug mats, rubber mats for the sink, --all sorts of great stuff!
Anyway, these backgrounds I did here are not using her technique completely but I incorporated a few along with some Dina Wakley techniques.

Beautiful, I especially like the firs one with the yellow heart.

Do I spy a henna stencil on it too??
I just love to use those. :)

Very nice. Are the hearts sewed on?

Isn't it great to play with new ideas and ways of doing things, combining them to make it your own. Love these great choice of colours and working with the various textured designs.
I think Pat's teaching DVD's are the find of the year!

Very cool. Perhaps it's because I just returned from vacation and walked through some shops that it occurs to me that this would look great on a shirt. Great work.
