Something New for PPF and SS

Hello and happy weekend! Well, it's almost here...smiles. Over a year ago, I found a piece of wood and for the last 12 months its been sitting in my craft room. I found it when we had to move our stuff for the new carpeting we had installed last month, and finally painted it. I had every intention of doing some pretty cone flowers in the shabby chic style, but that's not what I ended up painting!


This wood is solid and heavy, and has many layers of paints, most of them from whoever owned it before me! I added my own layers of paint and some papers. Then I sat quietly for the longest time, and just prayed that God would guide me, as I've been struggling for the longest time to find my own style of painting. This painting is what came out after that prayer! How amazing is that!
I really love this piece and it looks so cute sitting on my mantle. (It's way to heavy to hang!)
I plan to link up with PPF and SS and hope you will join me! (See links on the right) Have a wonderful weekend!

It was the right time for you to paint on the block of wood Debbie. It looks great. Looks like you also added gloss, it has a sheen to it. Nice work. Colors always brighten up one's outlook. Thank you. Happy PPF! I'll be post later or tomorrow. It's only Thursday here.

I love painting on wood. I think it makes the art so interesting and you did a great job. So colorful and cheerful.

I also wanted to tell you that the painting you did a couple of posts ago withe little girl hiding behind the tree and the horse is so excellent. I think it's hard to paint so many subjects in one painting and you did amazing.

The painted block of wood looks great! I also love the story how long it took until you started painting and what has happend after your prayer! This is a great motivation!
