Mother's Canvas

This one is for my Mom and I gave it to her today.  It has the elements that she likes and even matched her new table cloth, I didn't even know she had a new one so a nice surprise.  She liked it.

It is hard to see the sparkles but the butterflies and the corners of the canvas are glittered.  This was painted with acrylics, Faber Castell Pitt Brush Pens, Pentel Oil Pastels.
I free handed the girl and no matter how I tried to change her face, it kept turning out the same way.  She is meant to look like this.

Alot of texture from the background papers I collaged together and the paints so it looks aged.

Thank you for stopping by today, I appreciate your visits


  1. Wonderful Kelly, I love the color scheme, love the look in the eyes of this gorgeous lady. The butterflies are totally gracious! Awesome. you mom will be most happy I am certain about that ! Hugs.

  2. Of course you mom likes it because what's not to like? Her eyes are very expressive... like they are actually seeing you (this could be kinda creepy if you are a weird person... hahahahha).
    I have a lovely canvas in my possession today.. I will write to you in the morning.

  3. I'm sure your Mum was thrilled, such a thoughtful gift, just lovely Kelly

  19. Fantastic canvas art Kelly. This is beautiful and I am not surprise at all that your mom loved it so much :o)

  20. I could look at it for hours. I am so mesmerized by the littlest details you've added. The shimmer on her lips, the curves and shadow of the neck, the gorgeous eyes and that's just the beginning of all the fabulous elements you've added here. How groovy that it matched her new tablecloth too! I love when a plan comes together so well. :)
