Playing Around

I do not consider this one of my best paintings but it really wasn't about that. I have been playing around with new techniques I had seen while visiting some artist's studios during the SALA Festival. I had such fun just losing myself in the fun of play and not concentrating on the actual image. I love the technique and I also like the layers achieved.

Loving the play sessions Lady!

It may be an altered style of yours but quite magical and aptly named!

Play, play, play! Love the "mushroom series" that seems to be evolving. Bet the fairies will be dancing around this painting! I love fantasy!
So fun to see your paintings again. Have missed them!

Love to find a "fairy ring" and this is wonderful, Uta. How did you do those great little squigglies at the base of the mushrooms? I think it's the fairies talking.
