Working on Some Palms....

I've had a canvas sitting around collecting dust for awhile....
I'd done a very ambitious background which I happened to love...
Neglected to take a picture of...
Lots of blues on the teal side, green, yellow...
Anyhow, I got inspired...
And here's the progress thus far...

I have to say barely any of the original background is still visible.....
Lots of acrylic layers encouraged to drip thanks to a spray bottle and a desk chair for an easel...

My new favorite color is "Pyrrole Red Light"....(don't ask me how to pronounce it)...
Just know I'm a big corally orangey reddish fan...

Completely different theme for me...
and have to say I'm enjoying it!

Joining Paint Party Friday and you should Too:)

HappY HolidaYs To ALL!!!


  1. I like it! Lots of yummy texture. Is there more to do? It looks finished to me.

  3. Happinesss! Love the layers and the colors peeking through while luring me towars the water in the background!

  6. I'm enjoying it too! Love all the paint layers! Very interesting! A blessed Christmas to you and your family! Patsy from

  7. Looks wonderful! And the canvas shape really lets you accentuate the height of the palms and capture them well.

    Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones, Theresa!

  8. Enjoy the process, always!
    This piece is lovely... has a "soft" feel to it. Peaceful & calm, I like it.
    Merry Christmas. *hugs* :]

  9. I really love this! All my favorite colors! Did I say that to you last week?! I was thinking of Palm Trees lately too? Hum, I always think it is funny when several people I talk to have a similar thread running around and through them.
