New Mixed Media Painting in my Etsy shop

 Hey Friends,  I just listed this small painting 6x6 in my Etsy shop.  I haven't posted anything in this shop for a long time.  I was just disillusioned with all the time it takes to each one.  Etsy has made some changes and it didn't seem to take very long tonight, so maybe I'll stick with it or maybe I didn't do something right.
This little piece is something a bit different for me.  It was fun.  I am making my way through the alphabet with an old dictionary I found at Goodwill.  The acorn is from an old painting done a few years ago.  I printed it on Sumi Paper so it's translucent, a bit of the print shows through.
I love to do the thing with the old-fashioned paper doll cut outs, you know the banner of acorns across the top.  I use that as often as possible.
It is varnished and ready to hang.

Happy Trails

This is nice, Sue. I took apart a dictionary several years ago--even ironed the pages. Was going to do a series. I got as far as "A." It's framed and in a box.

I like the cut-out acorns.

Hi Hallie, So far I'm up to S, I think. Ran out of 6" canvas.
Glad you could stop by. It's finally a beautiful spring here so I'm sure you're feeling it too.
