Hi. Just checking in. Christmas is almost here and I am ready for it. I am getting anxious to start my new painting. It will be a standard size painting and a kaleidoscope. I never trace or use a projector so the painting will be alot different than the photo. I only use photos as reference. This photo is what I will be working from. I am going to change the direction of the light too.

Merry Christmas! I am decorating the house today and I will get the cards ready to mail on Monday. We put our tree up and so far just the lights are up. We found the perfect tree after going to three tree lots. I won't be painting until after Christmas but I want to thank everyone for signing up as a follower. Hugs to all of you. I have my original Aquabord paintings on sale (20% off ) in my zibbet shop. http://www.zibbet.com/ElinorSethman They will be on sale until Christmas.

I applied my secret glaze today. This is before I tone it down. I left it bright so you can see what I did. I used Sakura Impellist florescent orange in the petals. I have been using this color for years. It adds a glow that is slight after I tone it down. It really brings life into the work. I used it on Kaleidoscope Of Christmas Past...especially on the Santa bag. I am close to being done with the flowers and I am very anxious to do the kaleidoscope background...stay tuned.
