I think you are right, freedom from patterns makes us so much more creative. I like your circles a lot and I love the colour combination.

Thank you! This is my favorite color palate. I never knew it could be so much fun.

I'm working on 3 panels of a similar size and am curious about the size of rat tail you used. Also, do you have any pointers (aka "do and don't) pointers for working with longer pieces or panels like yours? How did you frame and mount yours? Thanks again and great job!

I'm not sure on the size of rat tail. I used what I bought at the local Joanns/Hancock store. I usually work a little while on the piece and stop when I get "stumped" or can't decide what to do next. I find that it's better for me creatively then trying to force myself to finish a piece. Trust your judgement, if you don't like a section its best to rip it out and start over. I have left something that I didn't like on the piece and I end up regretting it. It's not fun if you're not happy with it. My husband mad a frame with luan and we used the medium that she recommended. We are transitioning to her technique of using a frame with the foam board so it wont be so heavy. Hope this helps. I'd love to see what you're working on and I have enjoyed chatting with you.
