The $1000 Commission? Hahaha.

Acrylic and Ink on Metal: 18" high
Tangles: Scallops, Auraknot,Striping, Koryl, Spot Lites, Dansk,
 Polrevo, Paushalov, Keeko, Laces (v) Knightsbridge, Loops (v)
This project came to me as a joke...a dare.  My friend, Guy, found it left over from the Rummage Sale at the park.  Rusty...and painted with metal paint in sort of strange pastel colors.  I wish I'd taken a photo of the "before".  What was I thinking? "I am sure you can do something with this for me?"  He grinned.  

Two coats of white gesso.  Then some acrylic paint.
Then...what else?  Zentangle.  

It has a hanger on the back so it can be hung on something.  I will spray coat it with clear acrylic spray.  

I don't think Guy and Diane follow my blog so when I get to book club Monday night...I'll present it to them as a commission with a fake bill for $1000.  Hahaha.


  1. Very creative and resourceful -- I really like it!

  2. Love the outcome and your sense of humor. It really turned out well.

  3. Ginny this is extremely creative...wish I could have seen it before you redid. Bet your friends will be very surprised! Have a great week-end.
