BRIGHT AND CHEERFUL STILL LIFE

Conny at "Mix it Monthly" is asking for "Still Life" using the colours blue, black, red and yellow. 
Susi at "Moo Mania" is asking for "Bright and Cheerful".  Hooray!!!








It's made using my favourite technique - oil pastels combined with textile dyes, and then given a frame using photo-editing.



I'm also linking to "Paint Party Friday".

  1. Very nice Miss Sheila, love the colours! I have been mixing acrylic colours lately with inks and food colouring, that was fun, too. It's nice to play. Have fun, Valerie
