New Painting - Fleur De Lis

Here is my new painting. It's a 12 x 12 acrylic transfer painting on a collage of old maps and book pages with oil pastel weathering.  It's a surprise gift for a couple that I don't think read my blog....that is why I'm posting it.  The maps and book pages that were used for the background have sentimental value to the recipients.  I can't wait to give it to them in a few weeks......so don't blow my cover!


  1. This is really cool! I love how you used the maps and book pages. How do you do the oil pastel weathering? It looks great.

  2. Thanks Elisa. I basically rub layers of oil pastels all around the edges and smear it with my fingers to get the look I want and then seal it with a varnish...pretty easy stuff!

  3. That is so cool! I love how you made it personal for them. Those are the best kind of gifts.

  4. What a great gift. The background is fantastic.

  5. Hey, I found you through Katie Winarsky's blog, she is my cousin... anyway, I have so enjoyed looking at your art and especially love the mixed-media. So cool.


I always like to hear what you think.....drop me a note!
