At first, I didn't know if I'd participate, but then I found myself coating watercolor paper with gesso, then Golden irridescent fine gold, Nickel Azo Gold, copper and some silver, then I covered it all with black gesso and rubbed some off before it dried. I put on my image and began applying glitter...there's glitter at the top, around the figure, on her and around the Happy Mardi Gras words. And last but not least, the feathers at the top. And viola, there's the arch I didn't think would happen
Born and raised a city girl (Chicago). Now I live 23 miles south of D.C. Have loved art all my life. Primarily self taught. Raised 3 sons solo and they are my pride and joy. I have a 7 yr old granddaughter and a 2 year old grandson. They are the apples of my eye, and I hope they will love art as I do.
