This photo is funny!

After finishing the lace, I leaned the painting up on the credenza and it just happened to be placed on top of the lace doily used in the painting. I walked away to check it out from a distance (as you know, they always look better that way!). When I turned around, I couldn’t remember having painted so much lace, and got very confused for a few seconds, before I realized that when I sat the painting down it just happened to line up perfectly with the lace hanging over the edge of the front of the credenza!!!
As you can see, the lace is complete, as is the ruler. I've added the tabs in the pages and used some gold paint on the end of a toothpick for the book tab titles. I've also added shadows under the lace and edges.

Looking good. How funny about the lace.

Wouldn't it be fun to put some of the real lace on the mat when you frame this painting - just like in this photo?

Well you know you've done a good job when you can't tell what is the painted lace and what is the real lace!!

Thanks for your comments.
Don't think I'll be putting lace on the mat, but that is a funny idea!
