Love Wings Mixed Media

You know, I always swore I'd never be one of those "hearts with wings" types of painters. Not because I don't think they're cool and all, but because it seems like everybody does them anymore. But I finally had to cave and do one, if only for the sake of experimentation.

Love Wings Mixed Media

See, I had this little 4x5" canvas I wanted to use, and I also had some wing stamps I'd never used before. And as I sat there thinking in my studio of how to use the wings, the cliche got the better of me and I decided to paint a heart. And then I stamped on the wings and added some other details and embellishments.

So yeah, it's not the most original painting or subject matter in the world, but it turned out kind of cute and I like it, so that's all that matters. I also managed to start another Mixed Media painting over the weekend, and I hope to finish that and get it posted next week.
