This is a new category for me!
Some of you may know me from my art journaling and Coptic stitched journals that I post.

I decided I wanted to start painting -- needed something different and outside of my comfort zone.

Here is my first acrylic painting on canvas. It measures 10" x 20"

I've titled it: HELLO!

I would love any feedback you'd like to toss my way  Cheesy

Thanks for looking!

Fantastic!  The colors are just gorgeous.  I love the insides of the birds, they look like a wonderfully patterned fabric to me.

    This is quite lovely!  It's like painted quilting! 

    We must always challenge ourselves to new things...I came to sewing after years of painting and decorative woodworking, great fun and great challenges!!

    Keep up the good work and keep on learning  Grin
