advice, please...



I did this painting a couple of weeks ago and have since forgotten what else I was going to do on it. I wanted the text like that and an image of a tree/some trees on a hill, so I've got that... but what now? I'd like to get some beeswax on there but that will have to wait until I actually have beeswax... and one of those mini quilting irons. I think it needs something. Any thoughts?

  1. I should so not be allowed to comment. It's brilliant, Pippa. It carries me up to God. I don't know what else is necessary. It is enough, to me, as it is.

  2. I love that painting, it's very atmospheric BUT as for suggestions ummm I have nada on this one. Maybe POD will suggest something!

  3. Hmm, i would say that something is missing near the top right corner of the canvas. My personal take on the message is that it is a reference to some sort of higher power (mind you, my interpretation and not necessarily what you meant). Seeing some of your previous works, i get a feeling that you like to play with textures, so something like a straw-ish material in the shape of a star or something similar in the corner? Again, this is only a suggestion (and really, i'm only 15, so i don't know how valid this recommendation is).

    To be honest, i don't quite understand the use of the beeswax, though i'm curious.

    I'd love to see the finished piece!

  4. Thanks for your thoughts, Karen. Yes, the text is a quote from Jesus (you were right with it being from a "higher power"). Do you have a blog?

  5. Nop, i don't have a blog :). I find them hard to manage, but that's just me. Glad to know you received the comment.
