The King's Daughter


THE KING'S DAUGHTER

Photobucket

This has to by my favorite style of painting... just layering bits and pieces of paper scraps, using lots of gesso, and gel medium, then painting on top. It reminds me of when I was a little girl, and me and my sisters would all sit around our long wooden table with craft supplies spread from one end to the other, and we would each just go crazy making things...it was like an art feast!

It feels so good to finally be painting again... and I will definitely be posting on a much more regular basis! By the way, I've changed my website, so have a lookie if you'd like, and let me know what you think! www.shariyahgarner.com

Your work inspires me. I'd like to learn more about on-line classes/groups/workshops that focus on drawing and painting ... with some mixed media. Write sometime when you have a time ~ thanks, gg
PS, you have a lovely name.
