Well bust my Buttons!

This painting is a large one.
So it is filled with flowers and buttons
in honor of spring!
the 52 buttons are from my mom and mother-in-law 
and I love to think of them while I stitch them on.
It has layers of texture from joint compound and crinkled tissue. 
Tissue paper is such a great base.
Here are some closeups...
of details and lines rolled onto the painting...
and painted tissue and stencils...
and those buttons...
with 52 drilled holes...
all stitched in place.
"Well Bust my Buttons" will be going to artEAST Gallery in April
and hopefully will find a home ready to embrace buttons.
