Hand Painted Table with White Lily

Hand Painted Seashell Mirror

I have just finished painting this 10″ x 10″ hand painted seashell mirror with a whitewash wood grain effect. That is the sky reflected in the mirror in the center. I painted this with acrylic paint and I put a clear matte varnish over the top of the painting. I’m painting another mirror now with piping plover birds on the wood grain. I love those little beach birds they are so cute. Bye for now,...
