One of my many goals this year is to complete some of the works in progress that are taking up space on my work table.
I get these ideas and then am never quite sure how to complete them. Last night and this morning I was looking at these two pieces:
I decided these had to be completed. I need some flowers and color right now. It is cold outside and gets dark so early.
I started these many months ago. Probably in the summer because I only do painting outside.
This flower piece
started off as a blank brass piece. I colorized and painted it using acrylic paints and lumiere metallic paints. I then added the cute little snail which I also painted. Then I was stumped so it sat and sat and sat. I would look at it often but just glossed over it and said to myself “This can wait for another day”. Well now that time has come. I must clean up my work space!! Hey maybe my goal for this year should be to complete one work in progress every week! Believe me I have enough to fill the year.
This second set I colorized some brass filigree, riveted them together and riveted a vintage glass cabochon to the top. Maybe I will incorporate the tulip flower some how. Maybe not. but I WILL get these completed!
