a whimsical little painting I did recently . mixed media on canvass.
One of my favourite things to paint is trees. I am a real tree-hugger. This is also mixed-media on canvass. Below is a close up of the texture detail where I used tissue paper and gauze.
And these little recycled cans (baked beans, sweetcorn etc) that I have been having great fun making, were inspired by Lisa Kaus's "tinnies". You can view her beautiful tinnies on her blog: www.lisakaus.blogspot.com
My tinnies are made with fabric, lace and ribbons, with large wooden beads for feet. Just wish I had more hours in a day to do up all the tins I have collected.
I hope that you will have a wonderful creative weekend. LIVE LAUGH LOVE.
