I decided to have a little fun and go from a simple design to something more geometric in the design. This was fun and a lot more work for a small painting. Wouldn't it just be great to have a closet full of awesome purses to choose from when we are going out in our Classic Snakeskin Pump for the evening? Well it is kind of a fantasy since I only wear pumps on special occasions but I'm ready for one.
A lot of times I mix my blacks but not in this painting. I used Lunar Black (Daniel Smith). I used a blend of different reds already on my palette (not sure which was which). Then I mixed in the Interference and Iridescent colors from Daniel Smith to give the painting some "BLING". My idea is to paint this again larger before the end of the Challenge. It was really fun. Any favorite purses you think would be appropriate -- send me the photos please.

Sharing my paintings with others is one of the joys in my life. Educating others about how I paint and the media I use is very important and why I wanted to reach out through this blog. Hope you will add a comment about what you see.
