A Swap for Spring!

A group I belong to on is called Boomers and Beyond Etsy Street Team, or, simply the BBEST team!  Often we have activities which bring members together.  This April we have one entitled, Spring.

Thinking caps on….

This is what emerged from my fair hand!

Close upOne rule we have is that we are not to tell the other person who to expect what from!  So, I don’t know where or what I will be receiving and neither does my recipient.

Exploring nature

It has been sometime, I know, since I painted another creation.  Finally, I have taken the time to create/paint my latest.

I am loving the inspiration that allows me to listen to the wind, watch the grasses sway in the breezes and smell the various scents that drift over me.

Feel this painting which I have entitled ‘Whispering Grasses’ and let your imagination take you on a journey of discovery!

One picture shows a close up and the second I have taken at an angle to show how it has been completed around the sides of this boxed canvas.

I began the sequence of painting with applying droplets of wax which were then hot air dried.  After this I used my hot iron to smooth the waxes and then angled my iron to created the grasses.

Measuring just 23.5” x 15.5” it is neither too small or too large.  Now to find the right space for it!
