After a not very fruitful afternoon of painting poppies last Saturday, I revisited the two pieces I completed and decided there might just be something worth salvaging. I often hang onto work and then cut up pieces, work on the back, or throw things out. I’ve made a lot of birthday cards recently out of work I wasn’t completely happy with. No sense in wasting my efforts if I can use even a little bit of my work to make someone happy.
This is approximately 6 inches square. I’m still playing around with the dimensions. The original size is A4. There is supposed to be a lovely blue sky, but the green paint bled into it too much and it didn’t look right.
This one will be approximately 3 x 5 inches cropped from A4. I had another sky issue and I also wasn’t too crazy about the bottom of the painting. This would make a nice card or a small framed painting.
I think I might buy some mount card and try making my own mounts. I seem to recall trying this once and failing miserably. My skills with a craft knife are not that great. Practice makes perfect though.
