Margie & Me - Oil On Canvas

I was glad time allowed for me to take part in this month's Margie & Me challenge hosted by Marcie at La Bella Joya. I have always loved this challenge but time got away from me last month and it was the first time I didn't participate in months. I loved the first painting she chose for the palette! I love orange!!

Back in March, I won a beading contest and I received as a prize, a gift certificate to Beadazzled *YAY*. When I redeemed the certificate, I picked up a package of size 8 matte terra cotta seed beads. And when i saw this painting - I knew they'd work perfect for the palette.

I had hoped to try out the other palette, too - I've always been a fan of that painting "Girl with the Pearl Earring". But as it is, I have three unfinished projects on my bead table!!

Wishing everyone a reverent and fun Memorial Day Weekend!


  1. Oh yeah you know I love orange right? LOL

  2. Amy! What a stunner! LOVE the orange circles. They mimic her curving posture perfectly.
    Have a great holiday, as well. :)

  3. Oh , how lovely! It's so nice to see what others did with this color palette. This was my first time taking part in this, and I enjoyed it tremendously, but I thin the best part is to see what everyone else came up with. Very, very cool!

  4. I love your bracelet! The orange pallette seems to be super popular this month! Those terracotta beads look really nice - I think I might have to see if I can find some of those for myself.. :)

  5. It's great Amy! So delicate and yet such a great summery feel. Nice job!

  6. I love love love that painting it is so beautiful... I think your jewelry fits it perfectly...just stunning.
    I hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend!
    Take care,


Thank you for your comments!! They really mean a lot!
