Can't believe I'm actually going to show you this

I haven't made a card since Christmas, but I have been painting. I'm going to post one here. I just can't believe I'm actually going to do this, show my painting on my blog (embarrassing, really embarrassing). Painting is so therapeutic, the mixing of colors, making a mess. We've had a really bad time here, so therapeutic is necessary.

I used Lumieres and acrylics over fiber paste, with different gel mediums. There are layers and layers and layers on this canvas. It took me a week to finish. My daughter claimed it, but then I did a canvas in oranges and reds, her favorite colors, so she's trading me for that one. I'm going to hang it in my office.

It's this is lovely! I hope things begin to be better for your family soon. I know it takes such a long time to heal, but trust me - creating stuff helps!

Hugs & thoughts & prayers,
