Tiny art on bamboo

Here are 2 tiny pictures that I painted on bamboo pieces. Each piece is 1.5" x 0.75". I painted directly onto the bamboo without pencil sketches. That was different for me, and fun!
I love the way they turned out! I will probably make them into pendants, after I protect the surface with some clear acrylic coating.
Here are the bamboo pieces before they are painted. They need to be lightly sanded or primed before applying the acrylic paints.

  1. May , I just found your blog! I am so glad to see you are still doing art. I really like these. It was fun to see other things you do and to see your Mother is doing Pressed Flower art too! I got my MOM started pressing too. I gave her a membership to the guild. I just started blogging and have enjoyed,nothing as impressive as yours though!
    Happy Creating my friend , terica
