Time fossilized. It's nostalgic. I don't know what else you would want. Well done.

Dear Stephan and Tamala,

Thank you so much for your replies. I used the Golden brand of paint - first time ever - and just love the richness of the colors.

This is a first of a series - after all, I need to practice, practice, practice!

Thank you again so much - your comments were so encouraging!

I can't make any suggestions either except to say I like it very much. Very rich is a good description. To me it has a kind of mysterious ancient look to it with the colours you used and that's what would immediately catch my eye and make me want to observe it closer if i saw it from a distance in a gallery. Reminds me a bit of encaustic with its rich luminous look too. Thanks for sharing.

Good morning Isabeille

I can't offer any suggestions either because this appears finished to me. I say 'sign it' :) I think it's lovely. Wonderful color :clap:
Can I ask what mediums and support you used?

Thank you both so much for your comments.

When I got home yesterday, I started another painting, which usually means for me that the one I have been working on is done. I will leave it "as is" right now. I am only beginning in this new form of art (I had never painted on canvas before), so this whole feeling is very new to me.

Di, this painting was made using acrylic and ink. The texture was created by gluing tissue paper. The dimensions are 18" X 24" (this was also a first for me - I had never worked that big, which may seem small to most of you!).

Thank you again so much,

Well, well, a neighbour! I am from Boucherville, not very far from Montreal. FYI, my first language is French, so if it is easier for you, we can send each other private messages in French (I would not want to be rude to the community!!!).

The painting is 18" X 24", on canvas, and the mediums are acrylic and ink.

Thank you so much for your comments - I am very new at this (this is only my 2nd painting!).

Dear Amanda and Bendyweed,

Thank you so much for your encouragment. I have an exhibition coming up on June 24th in Book Arts - so I need to get busy and make the books I want to bring.

Although the painting I started is just screaming at me to finish it, for the next 2 weeks, in order to be ready for the art expo, I will not have time to pain (maybe I will sneak a few brush strokes here and there!;) )

I should be able to post something in 2 weeks.

Take care!

I forgot to login under my username - yes, the man in the picture is my fiancé and we are both using the same computer!!! He is actually the one who has opened up the wonderful world of art for me, 2 years ago.

Just thought I would clarify so that no one would be confused! :confused:
