The Goodbye Girl



Well, I have come to the end of this little red journal. It has been so much fun filling this one up because it is such a great size being 6x6 for each page. This girl is painted from a sketch and collaged on. I painted her with acrylics but then smoothed her out with shivas. Now on to more of Sharon's class! Sometimes my girls turn out really really ugly and I have to rip them up. It happens often. No ugly girls allowed! But sometimes one is borderline and she will slip in.

Another famously wonderful work from the lovely Martha...!!
I don't think that you could possibly do 'ugly'...your 'ugly is probably really great too!

Looking forward to your new sketchbook? It's always fun to start with a new one for me!

ciao until tomorrow

She is very beautiful and I am so happy you have surrounded her with hearts. I cannot imagine you would throw any of your paintings away as they are far superior to anything I could possibly draw. I would love to retrieve your trash. LOL :o) Keep creating...

What a wonderful feeling it must be to see the journal completed. And filled with such loveliness!! I would love to see a photo of all of the pages together. You know how people do those little square things. I cannot for the life of me retrieve the name I am searching for!!! Well, it's time for a new estrogen patch!!!!!

Have a good weekend Marthy, we are expecting snow - yeah right - I will believe it when I see it!!!

Hugs!!!

Wonderful journal page Martha!! I love your girls, and the hearts really make it sing!! I admire you for being able to finish a journal. I have several of them started, and none finished. One of these days, I will have to get at least one finished!!! yeah, right!!

Hi Martha, I think we all get something ugly now and then. It goes with the territory. Rather than throwing them out I cut mine up and use parts of them in different collages. Just a thought.
