Happy PPF!!!

I've been away for the past week and I will share more about it later..
But today is Friday and I'm sharing this painting...completed a while back


with Acrylics, watercolor inks, transfers and collage on canvas

I've always had a challenge with tranfers but this turned out right... :))
I used Caulk for this transfer..

I'll leave you with a quote from Rumi...
“Your task is not to seek for love,
but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”



happy Friday!!

Wow! The transfer and your coloring made me instantly think of the art on the walls of Pompeii and other ancient sites.

I have never heard of using caulk for a transfer. I'm impressed. Love all the great paint and "jar lid images" you used for the background, too. And your lady looks like a Fornacetti. Love the entire piece.
