Pretty Painting

This past weekend was a gloomy, rainy and tropical stormy few days. My area of town lost power for two days, so I was scrambling to find something to occupy my time. I found an old canvas under my bed, that I had ruined by coloring on it with red sharpie. I thought that painting the canvas black would cover up the red paint and for the most part it did.

I decided to start with a black base and then add a silhouette of a chandelier in white. I'm sure you've all seen the wall stickers that are black chandeliers, so using google images, I just combined the designs from my favorite chandeliers and started to paint.

After I finished painting, I added some pearls that broke off of a necklace to make it 3-d.
