I'm not sure what prompted me to begin painting this picture.
Maybe I've been reading too many historical novels
and have a yearning to live in Medieval times.
But being a woman in the middle ages would just s-u-c-k.
So never mind that.
I didn't set out to do it for the Summer Sun challenge,
in fact I added the rising sun on the right side so I
could use it for the challenge, eeek. But I'm
rather happy I put it in ~ I like the idea of the forest girl
with her owl standing on the edge of the woods as the sun comes up.
It's painted on rather rough wood,
and I wish I had used a smoother surface.
But I think I may just give it a coating of beeswax so that:
a) it smoothes out a bit, and
b) I have to stop fiddling with it.
Beeswax is so final isn't it. . .once it's on there,
you are truly finished. Unless anyone knows how to
get it off so more paint can be added?
I have another painting of a woman, and I am dying to
re-do her mouth, but alas, she is coated with beeswax. . .
Stop over at Inspiration Avenue on Sunday afternoon ~
the Summer Sun entries will be posted there.
Hope the weekend is treating you well!
