I just finished up the painting part of this piece. Since it is done on a piece of aluminium, I have sent it off to get some automotive clear coat applied to it. As a last minute addition, it also now has a thin gold leaf border. I will get updated pictures as soon as it gets back.

This one is 4 x 3 inches. Thanks for taking a look!

Very romantic and well executed. A real sense of nostalgia and romance.

That is lovely! I'm curious why you painted on aluminum.

You never fail to surprise and delight with your work!

So much detail, such fine work in such a very small space!

You guys are awesome, thank you.

Michelle, I use a paint that is actually a waterborne automotive paint. While you can use it on just about any surface, I have just grown accustomed to working on metal. A couple of advantages are its archival qualities and the paints ability to accept a thick clear coat.
