Watching

You wanna watch?
Like over my shoulder?
Yes? Well, sit quietly.

Started with plain paper transfer (above).





"Watching Shadows"
10 X 10 gallery wrapped canvas
Things don't always end up like you think they will.
Also, I must be going to finish this tomorrow as I have dated it so.
Enough for today,
Sharon

  1. Love that it started off with one idea and then it changed! MY hubby has been looking at this series with interest too and getting the concept of layers. It's broadening his painting horizons and making him more tolerant that this weekend I have have covered the dining table with all my paints, a McGuyered easel and a host of other essential art junk. Ah, happy art play!Thanks for sharing.
