FINI ET COMMENCER




A few coats of Varnish...and this colorful guy is heading to his new home. I really had a great time painting this piece. I love to paint on wood! It takes a bit longer, but I love the end result.








If the French is wrong...please excuse. I've decided that I need to get busy learning French. (The year that I took in High School...isn't really helping me.) We have cousins in Europe, and if we don't visit while they are there; I think we'd be crazy! So, more French words will be incorporated in my artwork...for a while.















Next projects... I've just started a mixed media piece using maps that my daughter was tossing in the recycling. Her trash and my treasure!!! And...I'm going to be creating three 6"X6" cat paintings to send to the Gallery in Bandon. I'm really excited, so I best get busy!










Au revoir!

I love that painting Deb and after all the years I lived in Quebec your title looks good to me!
I haven't used much French since I left Montreal and it would be a real treat to hear more of it again.
I can hardly wait to see what you do with the maps. I too am working on a few projects using things that were destined for a trash heap. It's kind of fun and exciting.
Have a good evening dear friend!

Oh so colorful and look at that expression of bliss on this beautiful kitty! Perfection on canvas, Deb!

I had 4 years of French and would also like to get back into studying the language. One of these days...

I so love maps and can't wait to see what you do with one!
