I can't believe it has been a week since I posted! It has been full...
But here is a painting I (finally!) finished! I am trying to use up materials that I have lying around, and I found several old wooden embroidery hoops, thought they would make good frames for painted pieces, so "hooped up" some canvas paper, primed it, and proceeded to paint! The image is one that I will use to prepare prints from, so I purposefully didn't show the wooden hoop. The original will be available tomorrow in my etsy shop -
There are five crowns in the picture, can you find them all? One is a little tricky, but I bet you will find it! Below the picture I have included references to the five crowns of the believer in Christ...enjoy!
