art on a board

yes, this is painted on a piece of "lumber"....a leftover piece from some work our daughter was doing at their home....i raided the scrap pile.....it is 5 1/2 x 16 inches tall....it was inspired by a picture i saw in a asheville, nc "about town" magazine.....i used acrylics and prismacolor nupastels on it.......i do love using the nupastels...... i just love using my fingers to blend them......i have a load of pan pastels but cannot get used to using the "wand"....

This is a beautiful piece of work Janie. I love the colours and the fact that you have recycled some wood from the scrap pile is great. Its fun to give new life that would otherwise been thrown away.
