Happy Election Day to my American Friends!


In honor of todays historical election, I thought I would offer up a mixed media painting I finished a few weeks ago. I didn't want to part with this, but then I want to keep all my paintings :-)
This was wood burned first on 6 x 12 birch plywood, then I went crazy with all sorts of materials. I love how she turned out.
I just put her up on ebay and if she doesn't sell, she will be placed in my Etsy shop. I titled her American Beauty.

May I just add that, no matter which way the election goes (although it seems pretty apparent who the winner will be) may it be the best for all Americans. I hope this new government results in a stronger, and more united country.

Blessings from this Canadian gal :-)

Hiya hon! Cuuuuuute site! And I love this new piece!
I figured out the problem with the backround site for you. You MUST be set on minimal backround for it to take.
Lemme know if that helped.
*MUAH!*

This is a wonderful and powerful piece - now that the election is over I feel PROUD to be an American again (whew! It was a long 8 years).

I bet all of Canada is exhaling in relief just 'cause y'all don't have to worry about 1/2 of the U.S. "moving in" with you! LOL.

Gypsycaster and Krissi- I laughed at both your remarks, but if you had to move up here, there is plenty of space :-D
