    Another welcome sign

    Hi all. I finished another welcome sign, and thought I could post it here. Thanks for looking.

    What a beautiful sign. Did you applique it or did you paint it on fabric?
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    Beautiful....You did a great job! How did you do it....paint it or embroider it? On fabric or what?

    Sorry I should have explained. It is a painting on wood, using acrylic paints. It follows other welcome signs I posted earlier. People seem to enjoy them so I thought I'd post the latest.

    Thanks for checking it out and the compliment.

    No fabric involved. It is another welcome sign after some I posted earlier. Acrylic paints on wood.

    BEAUTIFUL design
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Adorable. You have a special talent. Glad you are pursuing it again. Maybe someday you can incorporate the same talent into thread painting. I love to stretch my skills with each project. Bravo. Be sure and show us more as you complete them. (I can't draw a stick figure, so that is definitely not one of MY talents LOL)

    I have not reached a comfort level with painting. What I mean is every time I sit down to paint, I struggle with what to paint, what background to use, what surface to use, what colors, etc. And then the actual drawing/ painting is do it, then do it over, until I like it. So there is a lot of "stretching" done to accomplish even one painting project for me. Lol

    Thanks. My plan is make a few for the local animal shelter's fundraising sale in the fall. I enjoy painting them anyway.
