Lucky Bamboo and some exciting news!

There I was, with a stack of bamboo practice pieces and I thought, what shall I do with all these?
Over on Painting Friends, someone had previously painted a new painting over an old one, so parts of the old showed through.
It looked fun, so I decided to use one of the bamboo practices in the same way.

I sat and thought what might be a good fit with bamboo, then I thought, paper! That's how  I came to paint a diary over the top. Here you have it:

Lucky Bamboo





In other news - and exciting news for me- I've been asked to draw some pencil portraits as commissions! Eight in total, so I shall be rather busy. I may not have much time for other painting, though I intend to take something different  to art club each week. If I don't post so much in the run up to Christmas, you'll know why!

    I love the painting over the painting idea. This one looks like there are shadows cast from perhaps a plant on a window sill cast across the book. Love it! :0)
