I got this plain old cheap paper mache plate off of Freecycle with a bunch of other random stuff. Rather than let it go to waste I decided it could be beautiful with a little decorating. I'm not much of a painter. To be completely honest, the vinework on the plate is about all I can do in that area. I started out with a couple coats of black and some leftover green from painting with my daughter. I was originally going to do the whole plate in the vines but I decided I liked the look of it this way after stopping for a break.

I love the plate! And I really like how you did the vines just down the center!

I love your painting!
And I agree that it looks better this way (without painting the rest of it).
You made lovely swirl-thingamagingies.
