Art from last Year

     Going through some pictures,
 i came across something I made last year but never put on my blog.
Since I haven't posted much this year, thought i would blog about this fabric.

I started with a square piece of tan duck cloth. I decided that my main 'motif' would be hearts.

 I free-handed hearts in white paint where I wanted them to be, then started adding color.
I gave them more dimention by adding color on top of the initial color.  I free-handed 
 various shapes to add more character.

 Everything got a black outline.   Dots, dashes and scribbles were added where I felt they were needed.
