Work in Progress

I've had this fun idea in my head for a few weeks and am finally getting started on it. Last week I modge podged pieces of old hymnal music sheets onto a canvas. I tried to have it mostly be the music part showing, but then I wanted to include some titles and words that go with my Easter theme. There is a big "Jubilate" at the bottom left corner, and then at the top it says things like "Easter Day", "Rejoice", and "He is my friend".

It's been a really fun project so far and it's also been a good challenge because I have never done a painting this big and I am also trying out some fun mixed media techniques with it.

You can see my little sketch to the right that kind of shows my plan for it. Basically it's going to have a bunny in a dress holding a banner that says "Christ is Risen!" and looking up to a cross on a hill. :)

Thanks for looking! I'm really excited to see how this turns out :)
Have a happy weekend!
