Today, I would like to describe how I prepared for my daughter Karina's birthday. Although this event happened a few days ago (May 1st to be exact), I decided to paint a painting for her new house. Since she had just moved into this new house, It was almost empty... :)
A few weeks prior to her birthday, Karina had told me that she dreamed of having a painting of poppies.
Painting absorbed all my spare time for several days. However, once I finished the painting, I was staring at an abstraction of poppies, in 3D. To paint this painting, I used mixed media, acrylic, on canvas.
In addition to the painting that I painted for Karina, I made a brooch for her with a personalized letter "K" (for "Karina").
The brooch was vintage, and I used citrine and pink opal to make it.Just a day or so prior to Karina’s birthday, I decided to also paint for her a greeting card - poppies again :)
