Back to My Teeny Tiny Art Series

Wanted to make a card for a friend today, and the teeny tiny art series I started a couple of weeks ago called to me.

Picked up one of the pieces cut from the original collage, turned it this way and that, trimmed it a bit, grabbed some nylon screen and laid in some texture with paint.

Then, started tracing lines and shapes with ink.

After that, used oil pastels.

Next, trimmed a bit more. Took a photograph, realized I hadn't signed my painting, saw where I wanted to add color.

Now, done!

    1. Thanks, Sheila. This piece was indeed fun in the making; also very contemplative.

  2. Very beautiful, Dotty! And I don't know how I missed commenting, but I really love Criss-Cross Logs and Moss. It's perfect. And CONGRATS!! dailypaintworks thought so, too!

    1. Thanks, Laurie. "So Much" held much behind the scenes as I painted, and then delighted me with its light and hopefulness once completed. Thanks, too, for your appreciation of "Criss-Cross, Logs and Moss," a piece that was very enjoyable in the creating. What I want to know is how DPW selects its picks for the day—even if by random selection, it's fun to get a nod!
