Just Breath

This painting was an experiment with new sparkly paints that I recently bought. I wish you could see the shimmer this painting brings. I first experimented with the yellow and green sparkle paint with regular watercolors on a pre-stretched watercolor paper. I sprayed water and just mucked around, then I stamped into the paint with the letters to spell Breath, and waited for the paint to dry. I then studied the painting and found an angel it the paint. I sketched her right into the abstract paint. Shes so soft and loveable. Enjoy!

Hi Shelley! I love this the yellow and soft green are so soothing and lovely together. And the angel's face is so serene.

I got your email yesterday...I am just finishing up illustrations for a children's book, in the midst of this holiday season, but I will write back to you when I have a moment to breath.

I am so glad to have discovered your art. Your blog is a wonderful escape for me.
