Shells & Snow
As planned, this painting was completed yesterday - when it reaches the point that you are going over the same things again and again, it's time to stop! I'm quite pleased with this - it doesn't have exactly the misty feel of the reference photographs, but I do feel I have captured that pink morning light through the trees which was the intention. This was painted in acrylic on canvas board which was first treated with gesso as I hate the texture of canvas!
The painting will be on sale in my Etsy shop shortly.
A long time ago, over 2 years I think, I got a commission to crochet seaweed...yards and yards of it with shells and various pieces of flotsam and jetsam woven into it. This was to be used as part of a frame for a mirror. This week I was kindly sent photos of the completed mirror by the lady who commissioned me, somewhere in the depths of Texas. I think you'll agree it has turned out to be jaw-droppingly beautiful! She commissioned another artist to make the shell-encrusted frame - a very clever lady! I wonder how she did it...I'd like one of these in my home too!
