AWwww, thanks ladies.

After painting her, I have decided that (after I get some tiny brushes) I want to make a big shadow box, and paint a popular or favorite painting from musuems I have visited around the world!

Next will be Starry Night (the MOMA in NYC), then a Picasso (paris), then a warhol (pittsburg), a miro (barcelona), a Salvador Dali....The persistance of memory, probably...you know, the melted clock one! (Paris), a Degas (something from the Orsay Museum), something from the Guggenheim in NYC ....
The possibilities are endless! 

Of course, this is just a craftster's rambling dream.  My eyes would probably go blind trying! 

I do love this mini comp SO.  We should do a mini craft-a-long for everything we have been inspired to make!  Don't let the spirit of the mini die!!!!!  Tongue

I will probably just get to paint a few mini's for others for personal swaps.  Anyone? anyone? bueller?

I am a loon, I know.

If you're serious, I'd love to do a swap!! As much as I love the Mona Lisa, I am freaking in LOVE with Starry Night! I would swap you for that!! I don't know what I could do in return, but do PM me if you are interested! Smiley

Well, I do have a bunch of upcoming projects and swaps...but I WOULD swap art for something of equal value/effort/talent from my wists... I have painted Starry Night before; see:


It's a watercolor piece (one of my only watercolor pieces, I am an acrylic painter mostly)  8 1/2" by 11" on watercolor paper. I usually use it to show clients that I can paint anything they want, but I would trade for it (or paint another one on canvas)...  The pics don't do it justice, of course...the details on this one are crisp and lovely.  It is ready to be framed!  Right now it just gets a place of 'honor' in my portfolio in a plastic sleeve!

I should've done this for the mini challenge, instead of the Mona Lisa; I am much better with abstracts and landscapes than portraits!  I didn't want to have ANOTHER Starry Night on here though; since the melted beads last month and all.  Oh well, tell me what you think!

That is gorgeous!! I looked at your wists and I can definitely make something off of their. If I can't, my sister can, since she sews and I don't, so it's all good! Smiley If you want to wait a while before swapping with me since you have so much going, I'm okay with waiting as well. Just let me know when you're ready. I dont' want you overwhelmed or anything. Smiley

Maybe the beginning of September.  Thanks!  We could even request each other for the next Instant Swap!  OR both join the ongoing wists one.  I would prefer to do it formally since I am new to this swap thing.

That sounds good to me!! My sister said she's not capable of sewing wallets, she's never tried, so maybe I'll stick with the jewelry aspect if it's okay? I don't want your fabric to get ruined. (Don't get me wrong, my sister sews awesome, she's just never tried a wallet before, although she's made tons of purses. I should suck it up and try my hand at sewing some time!)

I'd prefer to do it formally as well--I'm doing a personal swap and that's the only experience I've had with swapping on her so far, though I did it many times on nervousness.org in it's heyday.
