Mixed Media Face

Yaaaaay! So excited to be playing in Paint Part Friday again! I have missed all of you the last several weeks. There is just something special about this link party - everyone is so friendly and inspiring.  I hope you have all been having a great time while I was away. Sadly we had a death in the family so all blog and internet stuff was put on hold.

I have been working on a quilt recently. You can see that here. And I am happy to be back to an art post today.


This painting was inspired by Roben Marie Smith and a lesson in Documented Life Project. The facial features are collaged sketches of eyes, etc. But then I painted over them with acrylics - just because that's what felt right. I was pleased with how it turned out and it was lots of fun to do.

So what are you working on? I can't wait to see!
Have a great and creative weekend!
