Wind Up Doll Art - Big Eyed Girl - Painting

I have a new painting that I am so excited to shear with everyone.

I started this wind up doll painting sometime ago and had to put it aside for awhile because I was working on some other paintings and projects. I have been looking at it the whole time though and couldn't wait to finish it. This painting is one of my favorites and I am so happy I completed it.

This painting is not for sale because I have decided to give it to my mother for Christmas. She saw the painting when it was still a work in progress and loved it. She has been asking me, "Did you finish that painting yet?" and when she and my family came down to visit me in NYC for Thanksgiving, she showed everyone the WIP (work in progress).

I varnished the painting and found a silvery golden frame to put it in. The frame compliments the painting so well and it has little decorative details in each corner which are shown in the picture below.

Well hope that you enjoy the painting as much as I do.
Happy Holidays =)

For those of you who do not know or have never heard of iprintfromhome, they are a family owned and oporated printing company. They are located in my hometown of Buffalo, NY and supply to customers all over. They pride themselves on high quality and have the best customer service.

I would recommend them to everyone who needs prints made of a photo or a piece of artwork. I order my 4" x 6" prints fom them and recently I ordered some ACEO prints which came out wonderful. I get the lustre finish paper which is a combination of glossy and matte finish which is perfect for art prints. Also the metallic paper is really awesome for certain prints.

Iprintfromhome also offers a program called 'Thank you dollars' which is...
If you are referred to iprintfromhome by a friend, you get a $10:00 credit to your new account. *To get your $10:00 credit in 'Thank you dollars'
Sign in as a new member and enter "TWEET - referrer's name" in the registration box when you create your account.
So for example if I refer you it would look like this ( Tweet- juliafinucane ). Hopefully if you are reading about this promotion here, you would be kind enough to put my name as shown above. Once that is done, they will then deposit $10:00 into your account.

Thanks for viewing =)
