I was going to clean my 'studio'


But painted instead....again!
So much for good intentions! I kind of feel silly calling it a studio, it's actually a little dungeon in my basement :) but it's all mine and it's all messy! Woohoo!

I tried to do a multi-layered background and search for a face in there. I found one but it was so high up on the canvas that I had to create something for the bottom area. I'm not sure if I should put a phrase or word on this or leave it as it. I was thinking of 'memories of home' or 'I'm coming home' or just larger letters spelling out 'HOME'. Actually, I was thinking of making clay letters and mounting them if I decide to keep it to one word. Or is it just too busy already?

I'd love opinions :)

Thanks for all the wonderful comments on my lunch break lady! Wow, I'm so pleasantly surprised!! I need to take Mieko for a walk right now but hope to check some blogs (and say my proper thank yous) when we get home. We had some much needed rain earlier and now the sun is shining. I love walking in the evenings after a nice rain. Awwwwwwwww, summertime!!

Hugs,
Darla♥

The clay letters of the word 'home' sounds like a good idea, I really like this, especially the houses with the news paper. Nice colours too. Great piece :0)

HI! I really enjoy your blog and your creative expressions! The girl in this painting seems to me like a guardian angel and I can imagine the tips of her feathering wings over the rooftops....

What a neat piece... I love the houses across the bottom. Personally, I love to use the word 'HOME'... doing it in clay would be fun!

I love this painting... HOME in big letters I think is great Idea ... One letter to each home maybe some hearts on the remaining homes? I love a messy art studio, whats the point of cleaning it if 5 minutes later its going to look the same or worse?LOL!

Studio At Crow Haven Farm said...

HAHAHAHA Been there! Aren't you glad you painted instead? You can clean that studio anytime...the piece you did is awesome. I love the houses you added. Wonderful job girl. Have a great rest of the week...P.S. Have the little trolls clean the studio for you so you can continue to paint and make us smile!
Cheers
