the little frame project...a change in direction

my little frame project changed directions.  i had originally planned to save the frame and throw away the old bird print.  as i started painting the frame i started painting the print too and decided that this was a great canvas for a painting and it only cost me $4.99. 
 i haven't painted anything for quite some time and it felt so nice.  i am a little bit of an unconventional artist.  i love to paint with my fingers and use whatever paints i can get my hands on.  this one is done with some acrylic, but mostly house paint and i only used a brush on part of the flowers.  the other part i finger painted and the circles at the bottom are created by a kitchen utensil that i don't know the use for.  i think it has something to do with eggs. 

always leave enough room in your life to do something that makes you happy, satisfied, or even joyous.

  1. I love that you got out of the way & just let this happen, Kelley. And i love this painting, especially the little swirlys at the bottom. And i love that your describe yourself as an "unconventional" artist.

    Your corner of the world is such a sweet place to visit.
