Glitz and Glam- Inspired by Tumblr photos.

Hello friends,
This post is a photograph I took today of some costume jewelry. I've been checking out people's tumblr pages and photographs on a site called (Click link) and have fallen in love with the numerous overexposed shots of food, jewelry and just about anything else shiny. Most of the shots look like they were taken using a polarizing filter. Unfortunately, I do not have access to any filters at all so, I just made do with what I have. This was a fun project and I hope you all enjoy looking at the end product. Remember to comment, follow me on Twitter @WaiLiArt and share.

Attention all! I've come out of hiding and have a completed painting for you. If you follow me on Facebook, you may remember the incomplete acrylic piece I posted of the Kiskadee I spied in my backyard. Well, I finally completed it, filling in the branch and adding some new details. So, here it is. I tried a new technique to extend the "manipulation period" of the acrylics. I added glycerin to the paint to keep it wet. It worked so well that the acrylic sat there for over a month, uncovered and was still wet to the touch. How cool is that? Less wastage! The use of glycerin made it much easier to blend the colours after application.
