This painting started with a trip to my local
Habitat for Humanity Re-Build Store.
Sturdy shoes required for rummaging thru
lots of Home Repair/Restoration stuff to find a
suitable 'Framed' cabinet door.
Scuffed, Sealed, Painted and Finished,
Available today probably at my Etsy Store.
She would also look great on a paper mache Trinket Box.
Maybe I'll do that too.
Looking forward to September when I hope to do
a Winterfair sale. This image may be there also!
Her title is 'Flower Girl'. The Orangy-Red color is totally
Beautiful with the Yellow Ochre hair and slick black frame.
Used a wet pencil-top eraser to 'carve' the flower designs, and
some permanent marker lines to accent. The result
is a dimensional, carved look, with the paint lightened to represent
the dress, and the black paint allows some brush-strokes to
come thru. Since the painting is done directly over the maple-finish
of the frame, the color comes thru slightly, which is exactly
what I wanted. Mmmmmm. So satisfying.
