Monday Mixed Media Canvas

Hi Friends!  Hope you had a nice weekend!  We had a busy one.  Friday night we had friend's over for takeout and pool time.   Saturday afternoon we left for Boston to celebrate a friend's 50th birthday.  We slept over, went out for a nice breakfast, walked & shopped on Newbury Street, then headed back to CT for a graduation party and then from there - a local music night with some neighbors.  Phew.......I'm about ready for bed - but figured I'd set up a post of my latest finished canvas.

One of the challenges in the Christy Tomlinson class was to do a bird and birdcage canvas - so I figured I'd attempt it.  I'm really pleased with it all - except my main quote is a bit too big........but I didn't want to cover it up - because it wouldn't make sense!  Lesson learned for next time.

Here are some close ups:

Hope you have an easy week ahead of you!!!!!!!

Thanks for your visit!

I wouldn't have covered up that sentiment either! It's a gorgeous creation and love the bird and cage on here. You're rocking these canvases!!!
Sounds like y'all really did have a busy weekend - but fun!

Hmm, I commented thru gmail as this is where I finally found your blog coming thru at but didn't seem to take it when I went to your blog directly. Anyways, I love this canvas! The colors are gorgeous, love the bird and cage and I think both sentiments are beautiful, a nice canvas to read when you need a little lift!

You sure have been busy, too! I'm going crazy these days....just stole off from my sons college orientation for a few moments of peace. :)
Your canvas is wonderful! I love the quote...don't think it's too big at all. Love the bird and cage and am in awe of all the depth and detail!
