My art journey - from the first time I picked up a brush, in 2010, to now . . . .

A basket of flowers
Over a few days, I worked on this second slab of styrofoam - first, base-coating it, and then working on adding bits and pieces of the colours I planned for the painting into the background. Then, I worked on the basket, and that took a few 'takes'. Originally, this had a handle, but it looked too sad (I need to work on my 'weaving' technique for the handle), so I filled it up with flowers instead. To remind me that there indeed was a handle there somewhere, I left a bit hidden in there among the flowers.
... just finished - paint still wet
... and to remind me that I actually painted 'over the edge'
