Perspective on Paradise
The Little Mermaid gave up her voice in order to live on dry land. Tom Hanks gave up his business and his brother to swim alongside Darryl Hannah in the movie Splash. Where would you rather be? What is your idea of paradise?
The canvas is a 12x12. I painted it, covered it with patterned tissue papers, stamped and inked it, Stickled and Mod-Podged it. It boasts jewels and seashells and fringe and feathers. The color is a little off on my camera, but you can even catch a glimpse of a fast-fading sunset.
I've been so busy with a commission of Cotillion invitations and my DT responsibilities that I have had no time to paint, and thought I would take a break from my work (and my work) to let the muse ran away with me (or rather swim away with me). Do you ever take your Muse out for a walk (or a run)? You may be surprised where it leads you!!
Keep crafting, friends!
