Starsweeper

I'm new to Paint Party Friday, so I hope I have the right idea. I can smell a fresh breeze today, and this little painting seems to fit for the spring cleaning I ought to be doing.

I posted this one's sister a while back. This one is also egg tempera and gold leaf, except on this one, I made the paint.
