In the name of the..... Cross/Rememberance project
Today I decided I really wanted to work on this cross picture tray and get some new color on it. My intent is to give it as a gift to someone I know may be having a hard time right now. Like me.. her favorite color is purple. She has never really experienced any of my art, so i wanted to be something special. Worse case scenario, if don't love it enough to gift it, I'll have a new cross to put on my wall for reflection and prayer. (tee hee)! I furst covered the cross with Deco Art Media Line Gesso, which is very smooth going on.
After that I took several of Deco Americana acrylics and did a super dry brush of colors. The I even went back over the piece with a napkin to remove some still dampened areas of paint. What to do.. WHat to do???
Thats the best part about arting everyday. I can walk away from this project and find something else completely to do! Not quite sure how I would embellish this, or even sure what scripture to include. Hopefully something will come to me soon..
