Snow Angel

hi everyone, here is my first 'winter' painting for the season, the first of many I hope. Sorry for the bad photo, it's evening, and I have a crappy camera, lol.
I had to stop myself from creating too much texture which is not an easy thing to do. I love texture! but unfortunately, if you want to make prints of something, the surface needs to be relatively smooth.
Do you think I should add text to the painting? I was thinking of the words 'let it snow'...or should I leave it as is? I'm on the fence right now...

Thanks for all the sweet comments on my mermaid journal page from my last post! You've inspired me to keep at it. When I posted that page, I didn't think it was all that creative but now I know that there is room for all types of pages. It's those darn expectations that we all have to deal with. Let's keep reminding each other to just go for it, create for the sheer joy, and stop expecting our work to be like everyone else's.
My blog friends are the best!

thanks for reading, have a blessed day

I think she is fabulous, and I would just leave her as is. I LOVE this piece!

What a doll face! You could try the text on the computer instead of committing to it on the painting. It will give you a general idea. At first I thought, yes it would look cute, but then I think it looks great without it too. I love negative space. And you are so right about our silly expectations! I love all my blog friends too, including you! :)

Lovely as is - add you text on a clear overlay and see how it goes. Beautiful either way :D

Lee said...

Oh, she is so very pretty. Well, you do have room for words, although not needed, I think it would add to it. I love adding text so maybe I'm a bit biased.
