Older Painting - Spider's Web

"Oh what a tangled web we weave............" A series of events last week made me think of this old saying. How true it is. Made me think of this oil painting I did a couple of years ago. An OSWOA (4" x 6") long ago sold. It is done primarily of little "drops" painted circles actually in acrylic and then layers of oils over the entire thing. It looks so mystical.

I have been tagged by one of my favourite mixed media artist. I don't think there is any medium that Deb hasn't tried and succeeded in. She's a gifted artist and one of the most kind, supportive people I know. Go look at her blog at Artshtick's Corner to see loads of Fine, Fun Art!

Some unusual facts about me are: my life isn't that unusual so it's not going to be easy :)

1. I used to be a stock broker and in fact Branch Senior, Options Trading Supervisor are some of the titles I've held.

2. One of my favourite things to do is camping and have a secret desire to own a RV/campground in the mountains (preferrably near Nelson BC) someday.

3. I like to work on our family tree in my spare time and have met many distant "cousins" on the internet while researching.

4. I hate bananas with an absolute passion. It makes me sick just to think of them!

5. I am allergic to wasp stings and have an absolute phobia of them!
