Painting Finished!

I finally finished this painting. I know there must be..... hundreds of dots! Twenty something years ago I painted furniture something like this( the background without the girl). Sometimes the pieces would take months depending on the size. I painted a floor lamp and it sold the minute it came in the shop. I would love to do another lamp for myself. It just takes so long to do this type of painting, so I have to dig into the bag of patience( which I do not seem to have much of lately). There are things I do not like about this pic, so I'm anxious to start another one.






I am calling this piece "Dream Weaver".

  4. Oh it is sad you do not like her. She is fabulous. I love the swirls at the bottom. And her complexion. And the colors and, and.....
    A dresser top painted like this would be awesome.

  8. Hey Kim, I keep coming back and loving your paintings, thanks for the sweet comments, since you are my blog mentor, I suppose I will give children's books a try at some point, but for now I'm building a Sea Tow Business with the Capt.
