Izzy’s Rainbow complete!
I’m so happy! Third Piece a Week completed! Well, bar the final coats of gel and varnish. I think I’m going to have a varnishing day soon.
This one is for my youngest daughter.
Izzy’s Rainbow, mixed media mosaic, acrylic on canvas, approx. 710 x 355 mm.
I didn’t initially plan for this to be a mixed media mosaic, but when I finished the rainbow, it was clearly missing something, so I started sticking gems to it.
Here’s a close up shot.
And this is what happens when you put it out in the morning sun 😀
What can I say? I like bling 😀 It still needs to dry for at least a week (Thursday is going to be 39C, so plenty of drying power there). Once I’ve coated it several times in self-leveling gel and varnish, it will be going on a wall in my youngest daughter’s room.
So I’m three for three so far! Which piece of art will I crazily attempt to finish for next week? Hmmm…
Don’t forget to check out A Piece a Week and all the other wonderful artists over there. Maybe you’ll join us? And I’m also submitting this for Paint Party Friday, because let’s face it, I have three days of work before Friday and I’m not going to get anything else done by then. So make sure you drop by Paint Party Friday and have a persuse of the great art over there too.
I hope your week is as arty as mine has been 😀
This is awesome!! I love the bling… how cool! Well done for doing three too!!

Love the rounded texture of the beads. Those close ups might need to be blown up really HUGE and printed. Wouldn’t that look great?
