New Mixed media painting

Oooh I am so excited to share this painting with you today.  It has taken me all day so far to do.  Not sure it is finished yet but I just had to share it with you all because I am so excited.  It is so vibrant and totally different from the paintings I have done before. I feel quite shivery when I look at it.  Did I really make this?  I love it! (Am I allowed to say I love my own paintings?)

    have a lovely Friday

    tea cup and saucer,
