About a month ago, I went with some friends to the Painted Plate in Greensboro. I painted this small plate. And I love it!
It was so relaxing to just spend a little while in creative expression. Not having any thing I 'had to' do, just let my mind roam. I'm no artist, clearly. But still, not bad for a first effort!
I love, love, love leaf patterned things. I found a stamp with a leaf on it and went from there.
I like how the plate has the small upturns on the edges, and how you can see light brushstrokes in the yellow.
I love to serve glazed bacon wrapped water chestnuts on it.
I can't wait to try it again!
