A Bit O Background Fun

Yes, still avoiding doing any REAL art, just playing around with some backgrounds. God only knows what their fate might hold. I just love the relaxing, playfulness of doing backgrounds. The one in the center I kind of futzed and fiddled with in Adobe and now it almost looks like a painting in itself. At least to me. And lastly, we have Ursula. A left over Mixed Personna from last year, that has just been hanging around, buried under more unfinished pieces. Poor thing. Didn't even come into being, and reaching her full potential, before meeting her unfortunate destiny of being smothered and buried amongst the daily activities of life. Hmmmm...kind of like how I feel at times. Maybe that's why I like her so much. She does a look a little pale, dontcha think? Well, I guess you would too, after all she's been through.
So what does fate have in store for all of you this week? I'm still hoping for that winning lottery ticket! Happy Tuesday!

you know whenever you decide to go for it you would succeed. i know it. tell me to shut up, but you have something to do with books in your art. i see it and i feel it.

I must admit, painting the background on my paintings is the most fun and relaxing. Oh, and Ursula has GREAT hair! Thanks for the link!

What do you mean REAL art? It IS real art. I love the backgrounds! And yes they too...are ART! Silly girl. And Ursula is a hoot!
Thanks for stopping by and yes I am a bit of a racer in my red hot Mustang with 5 on the floor.But I try to keep that at the track.
Have a great rest of the week!

I love that middle one with the rose colors and pinks and flowery looking. Thanks for sharing...I love doing something like this and setting it aside and some day the perfect piece of art will be made from it....when it is time.
