Mixed Media Painting

It was a beautiful sunny New Year's Day so I spent it in the yard. I started out working on a knitting project for my grandson. But I promised myself I would make some time for painting today. So when my fingers were too tired to knit, I set that aside and worked on a mixed media painting of a pretty girl with a serious look.

I did a lot more work on it, but don't have photos of that part yet. I did a pen and ink tree sketched from the one in my neighbor's yard. I sketched in the grapevines. I added text from the movie "What's the Bleep and my own thoughts on the movie. Then I added chakra circles. I really like the way it is turning out. I'll look at it tomorrow and decide if it is done yet.

First painting of 2014.
