Here is the first piece I painted yesterday for my new art series. The panel is a wooden panel from Ikea measuring 6x15 inches. The medium is acrylic, with textured henna patterns and a small mirror in the center. I made one tiny little change to this after the picture was taken. I haven't decided which way it looks better to screw the hanger on. I love how the wood grains actually show through. Today I have prepared three panels, and hoping I can finish at least one painting by tonight. I am so excited for these and look for more to come soon!

After spending hours in Ikea last week, I found box frames that I really liked for these Diptych. The paintings are acrylic henna pattern with texture, sealed with a varnish finish on 6x6 gesso boards. Bright colors, suitable for any wall color, can be hung in any direction. Finished frame size is 10x10.
