Spent the day yesterday at the Toledo Art Museum. A special exhibit of Manet's portrait works is currently on show. Beautiful!!! I could have sat there all day just looking at the gorgeous paintings. To me, beautiful works of art are so uplifting. Came home all relaxed and happy.
Today, I have a very small work of art of my own to share with you.....great sag-way wasn't it? LOL. This project was made for the Blockheads Technique Challenge ----Gold Leafing.
The Challenge is open until October 21. Still time to enter for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to Blockheads Paper Arts.
