Latest designs

This piece is painted using Jo Sonja's Artists Colours on Canvas.
My sister took this photo of the sunset over the pool, while staying at a resort. I just had to paint it.
With all the recycled bags lately, I thought I'd get in on the act as well and paint a few calico bags.
This bag was painted using Jo Sonja's Artists Colours with Textile Medium added to the paint before painting.

Here is a close up photo. Can you see the rhinestones?
I'm already working on the next one.
Thank you for dropping by and leaving a comment.

Hi Anna

Love both your projects!!

Good idea with the bag, it turned out beautifully, looking forward to seeing what you do with your next work in progress bag

It was a good day to be inside painting today wasn't it, I've been doing the same, but no result to dare show on my blog post yet, my painting didn't want to come forward, hopefully tomorrow

Hi Anna,

That painting is great! It looks like a fancy travel magazine picture and if I didn't know any better I would say it's a photo indeed! Are there any one day painting workshops (for beginners) you know of in Melbourne which you'ld reccomand? (Hmmm...did I spell that right?)
