This huge acrylic abstract painting on canvas was my first and (hopefully) last "modernistic" piece..........it was actually fun, and done for my teenage great-niece. She just "had" to have a piece of my work for her bedroom, and using the colors she used. We can tell she's "creative" already!!! Heh, heh........don't know if that's a good thing or not. She used to paint her own Christmas ornaments for family members while I was painting mine..... many moons ago when she was small, and I was deep into "decorative painting". But then I got a computer! And found the Internet! And made all these wonderful artist friends "out there" that I never even knew existed! So now I'm into hand-beading. With tiny seed beads, mostly. On stuffed, fabric doll bodies. But I also make small art quilts for the wall and heavily embellish them with vintage buttons, laces, ribbons, embroidery, and lots of beading! I hope to have a new handmade brooch to show soon........ I'm playing with the Babylock Embellisher machine again, and it's so fun and quick to use those 7 needles (with NO thread!) to punch/felt sheer fabrics and yarns and ribbons together onto a base; then throw on a little glue-glitter, and some beads..........voila! A pretty, feminine brooch. (Most of the time.) My dear mentor, Her Majest Margo (Duke), has opened up new doors AND windows for me into the beautiful world of embellishments! Thanks, Margo!!!
