Along the Road - A Work In Progress

I took the above photo about 3 years ago.  I apologize for the photo's blurriness.  It was the same time of year, if you couldn't guess.  Queen Anne's Lace and Cornflowers...they always bloom together in summertime. 

This is the first day's work.  I sketched everything very loosely in vine charcoal.  I adhered decorative paper and string on the gessoed board with matte medium.  Not really sure where I am going at this point, but I had to let it sit and dry anyway! 

Second day's work.  Wow!  That is some vibrant color!  I think I will tone this down a bit!
I'm working with acrylic paint on this painting/mixed media piece.  I have been
experimenting - trying to obtain a certain amount of transparency with the acrylic paint.
Still more work to do.  Update to follow!

Thanks for looking!

Please don't tone it down! I love it, it also reminds me of abstract jellyfish. I love where this one is heading!!
