SHE LISTENS


As you can see the first picture is the  "in process" and the second is the finished piece. She is painted on paste paper. In the first image you can see the paste paper beneath her hair with was very nice---but she needed hair so I had to cover that up. I did the lettering in gouache.  The image is 12 x 12. The quote is mine.

WOW! Your art is beautiful. And you're taking Paulette's class WHY??? Just Kidding. Not to take away from Paulette's awesome work, but you are there already.

All your "faces" are terrific. This is my favorite. I like her eyes closed as she listens, and the lettering is marvelous. It finishes the piece perfectly and makes your work unique - well done!

Martha,
This is so lovely. I am so inspired that you paint everyday and I hope to get to that point.
I am planning to come by your studio soon.
