Getting in the Mood

I've been doing some festive themed paintings and finished this one yesterday. I thought it was about time I changed the look of this blog to match the time of year, so by the time you read this it might already be bedecked with the colours of the season! I feel the need for a new header and I think this painting shall fit the bill.

Hi Ruthie, that's lovely that I'm spreading the festive vibes! For my salt effect I use sea salt the crystal sort and make sure it's copmpletely dry before I brush it off :)
Thanks so much April!
