Hello my sweet creative friends....

This post is special to me.... 
it's a tribute to an online artist that has many talents and has really blessed my life almost every day by her wonderful posts and incredible displays of creativity.

This is my rendition of her hometown :)  The flowers, bird and buildings are all taken from the beautiful images she captures in her photography every day and shares with us.



Her initials are in the circle at the top of my building!!! V-J. 
Can you figure out who she is????  



I painted this piece using techniques that I learned from a guest speaker at The Painted Guru Summit.  Her name is Amber Kuileimailani Bonnici. Her class is called "Art From The Heart".   The technique was so interesting and fun.  Thank you Bibi Butler and Amber for the opportunity to learn and be inspired to create. 

Here are some of the steps on my way to the finish of this 20x24 acrylic on canvas.







Now, just a few more close-ups of my creation...
"Is This Your Hometown" 

I sure hope the person whose hometown it is recognizes it!!!

 












Here is a glimpse of some of the shimmer here and there in the painting! Just can't help it - I so love shimmer!!












Thanks bunches for taking time to read and comment.  I soooo love to hear from you. 
Oh and let me know if you figure out whose hometown this could be.  Initials... V-J!
Hugs. j.
