scissors, needle, and thread
4x6" - $35

This one began with just the pair of scissors - a primitive looking pair of scissors, at that. I didn't think I'd ever get it detailed enough to make a decent painting of it, so I decided to work a little longer before finally giving up and painting over it. But the more I worked on it, I found, the more detail began to show itself. Finally, pleased with how the scissors appeared, I could tell it just wasn't complete. The composition needed something more, something to add interest and movement to the piece - excitement, even - to the lonely pair of scissors. So, with a few careful brush strokes, I added the needle and thread, and that made all the difference, I think.

Please leave me a comment. And if you're interested in purchasing this or any other postcard painting, contact me with the name of the painting you're interested in - first come, first serve.
