Spiraling Into Blue ~ This is a wip which I worked on this week, 6 x 6 inches on a stretched canvas. I'm still trying to figure out what else, if anything else to add to it though. I painted it really fast, swirling my brush through the wet acrylic paints and the small art card below took me at least 10 times longer to paint!

Dotty Takes a Ride ~ in her 'souped' up toymobile...Just for the fun of it...I love entering the monthly themed (NFAC) Nibblefest Art Contest in Ebay. This month's theme was 'Secret Life of Toys' and I couldn't resist the fun! This is acrylics on a 3 1/2 x 2 1/2 watercolor paper and I used the metallic gold and silvery pearl acrylics which put the 'bling' on the toymobile and the painted ribbon decoration around the border. Here's a link to my auction.

Oh that deliciously deep spiral painting looks finished to me.
And what a great blue!
Your Nibblefest entry is just fabulous! So much detail,,no wonder it took a long time. Love everything about it,,,and it makes me think of riding toy cars with my Jack.
(smiling,,,it's precious!)

I love both of these! Spirals and swirls are my favorite.
The kitty in the toymobile is darling.

Heey Babs, thanks so much! That paint was some I had in a container and was a little bit more liquid and easy to swirl it around. Awww, I'm glad my ACEO made you think of little Jack and his toy cars, that's sweet!
Hi Jeannette, thanks so much, yes I'm always experimenting with something new.
Katie, thanks so very much, I had fun painting both of these!
