This is a piece of artwork I've made to go up in our kitchen featuring words from one of my favourite songs we sing in church. I made it as part of an online class at Big Picture Classes called "Got Paint" with the very talented Emily Falconbridge. If you click on the picture above you will see it in closer detail.
My daughter helped me create the background by sticking down lots of pieces of patterned paper onto an old wooden shelf. This photo helps see the size of the piece.
I painted a layer of watered down gesso over the papers once they were dry to mute the colours and then finished with drawing, stencilling and inky splodges over the top.
