Noras's class girl on canvas


This was so fun to paint although the napkin collages didn't show up very well so I had to pop out the color with paint. I put Scripture from my old collage Bible around the sides and sat her up on some knobby legs. She is 5x5. This class is very fun and I highly recommend it! I think I will paint another one of these because it was so much fun. That's an image transfer in the background. She's thinking about the old homestead---as I frequently do.
I also just decided that the knob feet needed a little color wash so I washed over them with the blue that is in the background. Looks better I think.

Hi I love your photos of the artwork! How did you get it to look like clip art?

I love that-looks really nice. Love all the layers and colors. That class sounds interesting. Is is all painting faces, or is it more collage technique?

Yeah-how did you get your picture of your art that way??? That looks so cool.

Oh Martha...I absolutely adore the finished product! your work is really something I look forward to seeing each day...!!!

I've used napkins and scripture in the past as well...it's fun to create with all sorts of materials...it really keeps it interesting.

Thanks so much for sharing this with me...you've just jolted me with inspiration to paint something already!
