Still wondering what I shall do now when exhibition is over. Don´t think I will paint much more, there are too many canvases in my apartment and no place to hang them. But I still have a few new ones that will need some paint. So, I guess I am not finished yet.

This week I went through some stuff I bought a few month ago and came across the mermaid stickers. So, I started to work with them. First I laid them out on carbon paper but decided to give them a background with their own colors. I used a foam brush I had still not used and liked the patterns it gave. Think it looks like waves so very suitable here. :)

Then I glued the stickers on the canvas and learned I should have wet them first. Now they lived a life of their own on the canvas :)  But I managed to get them mostly flattened.

Hope everyone is fine as fall has arrived up north and spring "down under", both colorful seasons.

Linking up with the following memes. My thanks to the hosts:
