Light It Up!

Light it Up!
6 x 6"

Another challenge from Daily Paint Works. Metal is definitely a challenge. Mixing the right color and trying to make it look like a shining surface. Whew!

Trompe L'oeil Box

I was given a 8" plain wooden box to paint for the Artists' Gallery 10th Annual Box Show & Silent Auction. So this is the finished product. I made a lid so it would be functional and I could create the open box effect for the trompe l'oeil. I chose the air, water, earth, and fire elements theme and picked inanimate objects. The closing reception is March 26, 5-8 PM. So if you are near Frederick, Maryland, stop by and see a great show!
