Another donation item and more
Here's is a second 12 x 12 canvas I painted up in a Kelly Rae Roberts inspired design for another charity fund raiser. It will be used as a door prize. Both fundraisers are for the Susan G. Komen 3-day walk next summer so I decided to do both donations very similar.
I had some old 8 x 8 and 10 x 8 thick canvases that I originally did designs with beeswax on them. I didn't think I could repaint over that even with melting as much off as I could so I completely ripped the canvas off the wooden frames. They're NICE frames....1.5 thick sides so I kept them. My son was awesome, he mounted 1/4 inch hardboard to them so I have 7 new canvases to create something on. This one has lots of texture, some writing stamped and a tree. Simple and fun.
I've been invited to put somethings in a local art gallery for a Holiday display so I'm trying to paint up some items that might be 'gift worthy' for anyone who decides to possibly shop there for Christmas gifts. We shall see what happens with this :)
Have a great Tuesday!
