2017 30 Day Challenge, Day 1

Shimmer 1
Mixed Media 4.5 X 3.5

Here we go again with a 30 Day Challenge. I don't know about you but after the holidays I need a push or a challenge to get me in the studio and working again. Let's face it, it's really serious "me time". I have some challenging events this month so I don't know if  I'll get 30 done or not. 
I've decided that I will do abstracts or non-objective pieces. Some of them may have a recognizable something in them but I want to push myself to do as many little abstract pieces as I can.
This one is done on illustration board with random pieces of rice paper glued on with mat medium. Then the watercolor, watercolor pencils, inktense pencils, and irridescent medium and gold acrylic to add the shimmer. Too bad the shimmer doesn't show up in the photo, it's a thin layer and adds interest.
