I was supposed to be working on other things. You see, I have 5 days off in a row in which all I wanted to do is putter around the house and get some art work accomplished. My goal for this mini vacation was to paint and finish the 25, (yes, that's right) chubby houses I have started and I have about 9 more birds in the works and I wanted to get them all done before I went back to work next Thursday.
So, of course I painted this! Hehe, bad...I'm so very bad.
I used my colored pencils and acrylics over some vintage foreign text on a canvas. The text I think is maybe Russian?I just love medical things especially vintage medical things.
I got this fabulous book at the thrift store. It was behind the counter and the clerk acted surprised when I asked if I could see it. When he told me how much it was I considered for a moment and decided it was just too pricey for me. I reluctantly handed it back to him.
He thought for a moment and then told me in the 'years' since he'd had it no one even asked to look at it, I was the first. He would give it to me for half price. I paid for it and left happy.
