Hope everyone is enjoying a well earned break this weekend. I thought I'd show you this.
I could pretend that I knew exactly what I was doing when I painted this today but the truth is I just happened to have a sponge roller saturated with gold paint left over from something I was working on. I always roll the remains of any paint over a page of my sketchbook because I'm too mean to waste it. The grasses are a commercial stamp that I needed to test before I used it on the other work so that's totally arbitrary too. The bird owes something to the beautiful cards Hilary gave us last week (thanks Hilary!) and also a book on Indian miniature painting I found at a library sale for 30p. With all this gold I am definitely getting more blingy by the day!
