A butterfly and blossoms 31

Mona Pendleton | Sunday, January 10, 2016 @ 9:00 PM |

Hi! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! Scott and I went to see the movie ~ Sisters. If you have a good sense of humor and are looking for a good laugh, I recommend you see this movie :) Today I have a page to share that I painted in my canvas paper art journal featuring a spray of blossoms along with a little butterfly:
I combined painting techniques learned from: David Jansen and Nancy Medina, two talented artists whose art work I admire. This page was painted using Liquitex acrylics.
 I'm sure I sound like a broken record BUT I'm learning so much as I practice stroke techniques and experiment using different mediums. I'm getting closer to my painting goal which is to paint a variety of LARGE sized canvases for some empty walls in my home. I really am happy with this particular page and wish I had painted it on a canvas. sigh... next time :)


I'm entering the painted page in the following challenges:

Thanks so much for stopping by ~ I hope you have a great weekend!
Be Sweet ;)
