Wow is it THAT long since I last blogged.... where do the weeks go!! They days are going so quickly that at this rate I am going to be in my 70's before I know it lol. Anyhoo I am joining in with Dina's new challenge here. called Out of The Journal. I'm a bit late though because I started a canvas and then totally took a wobbly when it just wouldn't go how I wanted it to... well it turned out to be a happy accident (love those) because I ended up with something I love even more.
The canvas is 8" x 8" and is destined for my kitchen when I have finished the other three for the rest of August. I already started the others because I kept jumping from one to the other when my mojo wasn't happening.
I used lots of paper layers and acrylic paint and I'm not sure I will paint faces on uneven background after this because I really found them to be a challenge in more ways than one. I hadn't intended to do faces at all.... I wanted to do something abstract but it just wasn't happening so I guess my love of drawing and painting faces just keeps getting in the way.
You can see more of the texture in this close up... not easy to capture with my camera but I hope you can see what I mean.
Hope to catch up with you all soon
