"Spring Doll" 7x7 Mixed Media on Wood
(Finished with Beeswax)
It's time for another Paint Party Friday!
If you read my last post you'll remember that I was exploring a couple of different themes: Spring and Paper Dolls. For this mixed media painting I combined the two.
(This photo was taken before I added the beeswax.)
This painting was all about layers!
I've received quite a few questions about the water soluble oil pastels I mentioned in my last post. This is a photo of the box they come in. Whoever said oil and water don't mix definitely hasn't tried these - I think they're fabulous!
In the photo above, you can also see the collage papers I created for this painting. In a previous post I mentioned that I cut my own stencils and stamps. Well, I also like to paint my own collage papers. It's a good excuse to splash some paint around and play with colors and patterns.
Now it's time for some fun over at the Paint Party Friday blog, but before I go...
I'd like to mention an amazing project:
The talented artist, Makiko (Maki) Hastings, is creating 1000 ceramic birds. The proceeds from the sale of her beautiful birds will be donated to help the people of Japan. For more information on this wonderfully thoughtful project please go here.
