WW: Almost Finished {Linky}

My first painting in January is pretty much done. I put a raven in the sky last night, but forgot to re-shoot it.

It's a tepee with a cityscape taking it over. Did you know that tepee can be spelled teepee and tipi as well?

Medias: Acrylic paint on canvas mostly painted with a plastic bag, thread stitching, Isaak's old pants were dipped in Gesso and used for the tepee, toothpicks, vinyl triangles, and pencil shavings out of the pencil sharpener. Very much mixed media.





Update: Here's the finished version I hope. I added lavender triangles, and the raven in the sky to stand for destruction.

Ai-

When I looked it up in the dictionary it said, "tepee |ˈtēˌpē| (also teepee or tipi)".

It turned out great! And a fun little spelling lesson, too :)

I really like that. You have a lot of talents, but I didn't know you were an artist.

I LOVE this! I wish I had it for my house. It fits in perfect with our southwestern theme and earthy colors. You did an excellent job.

I love it, Alissa...it's super beautiful indeed. We just finished working on a project of Native American as well but we had a wigwam instead of teepee :)

Wow. Awesome job.
I think I asked you this before, but do you have paintings and sculptures that you and Travis have done all over your house? LOVE IT

mail4rosey said...

This turned out really nice. And I did not know you could spell it 'tipi.' Cool, fun fact. :)
