Here it is almost the end of the month, and once again I'm scrambling to finish my painting for the Virtual Paintout! I really did start early. Life just loves to get in the way!
My new goal: defend my Studio Time like a Mama tiger!! :-D
In the meantime, below are a couple of pics of my progress on the painting based on Sri Lanka, the country we are virtually visiting this monthly.
When I spotted this little elephant along side the road, I knew she was my subject. They revere elephants in Sri Lanka, and even decorate and paint them beautifully for festivals.
Fun factoid: Sri Lanka has more festivals in the year than any other country in the world!
I included border design based on the arts and crafts of Sri Lanka, and since my little elephant is on her way to a Festival, I gave her a beautiful belled leg bracelet.
Here are the first layers of Sri Lankan Princess - let's hope I get it finished before the end of the month!!
Hope you like my Princess,
