Weathered Garden Room Squares

This past week was crazed with Valentine’s Day happenings, numerous Mama Dramas and serious winter storms that caused schedule changes. However, despite all, I was able to get in much more painting time then I had originally anticipated. The painting *experiments* have been a very positive and rewarding experience. This week’s texture experiments led to a really interesting weathered look that I am quite pleased with. For some reason, I have been able to let go and not stress as much about the end result. Because of that, the work is improving and my knowledge of the medium continues to expand – which is always a good thing! :)

Here are six new Garden Room Squares:

With the completion of 33 Garden Room Squares I have finally fulfilled my original ambition for this project. I may still continue with this series, as I’ve been having a wonderful time exploring the process. However, I no longer feel that unfinished, *something is hanging over my head* sensation about The Garden Room Collection. Well, of course that feeling never really goes away because of all the new projects and deadlines that continually get added to the list! :)
