it's really cool going back and forth from the original to the new version.

we sometimes sell off our sweet vintage wardrobes due to necessity.

First off, credit to the origional artist: J.M.W. Chrznoska.  This is a print of his/her painting that I bought for $2, it's stapled to a big piece of cardboard.  I carried it several blocks against the wind in a garbage bag to protect it from impending rain.  I'm pretty short and a few times I thought I might launch mary popins style!
   So this was a great peice to begin with but it was pretty scratched up.  My first thought was to do a Virgin Mary or Mexican saint style re-vamp.  I did the halo but also gave it an art deco feel.  Lots of layers of Gesso, acrylic paint, gel pens and a spot of copper glitter glue on each pearl.  Oh and I also turned the water into wine! I'm more of a sewing person than a painter and this was a big surface. So I was challenged but I had fun, I hope you like!
