It really makes a statement in the room. The paint is very gloppy; I'm assuming it was put on with a palette knife and I can still smell the paint if I put my nose to it.
The accessories that are also on the mantle are ones that I used with the Van Gogh, but now they seemed too small so I had to elevate them with acrylic risers.
Everything now on the mantle is hand made. You remember this little bird that I showed a couple of posts ago. The balls above are also hand made, as is the beautiful vase on the left of the painting, given to me by my son a couple of Christmases ago.
I'm hoping to get some sewing done this week and will post my results if I do. I'm just finding it hard to get going.
