Recently I made this new pendant with oil paints. I thought it would be fun to start making tiny garden/spring scenes.
This time I added a slightly bigger bail then I usually do, because I wanted a thick cotton cord in it. I do not want to use leather or silk, so I had to search a bit for something nice, but cotton cord proves to be very pretty Smiley so thats great! I was thinking about searching for a green cord, to make it remind even more of spring and nature.

Next one might be one with spring flowers. Smiley

I am doing all of these tiny oil painting pieces because I want to push myself to start painting again, I got nervous about it and stopped. So I am hoping that making it small and showing it to people will help to have the guts again to make bigger paintings. (also doing ATC's lol Smiley)

That is amazing! I absolutely love it!

I just started painting (with watercolors), and I'm having a lot of fun with it. I agree that showing my paintings to people is a little intimidating at first, but it is really nice to get comments and feedback from people. You should definitely try some bigger pictures!

So pretty. And if you still want a green cord cotton takes dye very well. You can use the hot water dyes which are fast.

I like this b/c it's a statement piece, while also not being "in your face", if you know what I mean.

Gorgeous piece!  Minimal and impactful at the same time.  Love the cord choice and the chunkier bail. The silver of the bail really makes it pop and gives it a little shiny oomph.

Beautiful - I love the natural texture of the wood as the background.  Just lovely.
