Whooo's...... Afraid of the Dark? Paint Party Friday Week 6

First I must announce the demise of Deep Dark Sea......I just couldn't continue on many layers and where I wanted to go from there wouldn't have allowed me to do so, so I ditched it in the garbage on thursday with my daughter's blessing. I will  try my vision another time. So on to the new painting project..........

I had this Florentine Gothic gold leaf frame for some time now and thought about using it for a religious theme but guess what, I changed my mind.

I once again used my wood burning tool to sketch the design out on the old wooden frame and then painted in Weeps the owl under a full moon with water colour paints, acrylic and ink. Since the frame had some damage I needed to touch up some places where the gold leaf had worn down;luckily I had some gold leaf stored away just waiting to be used. I guess it waited far  too long for when I went to open the jar it wouldn't budge. I ended up having my husband drill holes into the top so I could use it. I have three more similar jars of varying leaf colours with the same problem. Oh well, I did say last week not to purge art supplies or leave them too long unattended so this was bound to happen. Good thing they are still good to use, very surprised.

So , here is my submission for this week's Paint Party Friday Week 6 .....

" Weeps Afraid of the Dark "

Until next Paint Party Friday..... Happy Easter and have a great weekend.

Oh and many thanks to all who left me all the lovely comments last week....I did read them : )

I can't tell you how many pieces of art I have thrown out! It's part of the process. Your owl is looking great in his new frame! Have a Happy Easter Annabelle. :-)

Weeps is the cutest little owl and the frame turned out beautifully. I too have thrown out many pieces of art but usually don't stay with them as long as you did. I still think it was a very pretty piece of art.

Oh, poor weeps afraid of the dark! So cute and sweet looking. Both his image and his story I think would be a great subject for a children's book.
I like your blog...we share similar tastes. I love old things and ghostly matters. I also used to paint on those mushroom shelf's when I was young.
Happy Easter!

That frame is beautiful! I believe it is helping dear little Weeps feel secure. Great piece!

Sometimes a haunting melody can make quiet an impression ~^..^~
