"looking for love" mixed media monday "romance"


I did a painting today of a girl who is looking for love. My youngest son and I had a play with some air dry clay this morning and so I made the word "love" out of clay, stamped it then painted it with acrylic metallic paints. I glued it on to the canvas usidng dimensional glue and added some on the top to add a bit of gloss. The background uses paints and napkin flowers. I really like using napkins at the moment as the effect is subtle.

Lovely - the napkins are gorgeous in the background, the clay letters are so effective and I'm sure that girl will find love, she has such a pleasant smile! Diane
