A Flurry of Activity!

I love three day weekends! I can get done what needs to be done for the house and the rest of the family, and finally have a bit of time and energy left for me to paint or garden. Did a little bit of both today, Saturday, and planted some pumpkin seedlings, and finished up a bunch of partially done projects. I painted the interesting piece of wood white and glazed it. Looks better but still dont know what to do with it.
Finished the crows and moon and varnished it, so hopefully it will have a nice wet look.
The little angel was painted on a panel that already had the pretty crackle border. I gessoed over the flowers in the center and painted with acrylic, used a bit of Inktense pencil, some gold glitter gel, and crackle finish over all. Not so sure about the glitter stuff, I think it needs a special project to really work well, but it is neat stuff.
I have been working on the oak tree for a long time; it started out in acrylic, and then accented with the Inktense, and varnished. Really love the colors and texture in this.
