This piece is pretty big, I had a hard time getting afull true copy of it, so here it is in bits and pieces---from beginning to end.
I painted free hand these shapes way back in the spring and there this background sat. Sometimes that's how it goes. You start something when the inspiration hits you, but they aren't always meant to be finished right away. Not everything in life goes from a-z. Sometimes we stop at F or U for a break (haha).
The gold rays looked dirty and the stamps were all crooked.
Okay so this wasn't next---I can't stand the difficulty of rearranging your pics in this program but since it's free..I'll shut my mouth!
This the full picture but it's darker than in real life--Ipainted on some ruby red lips, glammed up her eyes and brows, painted on my first tatoo around her neck and to the side of her eye--and embellished until I could embellish no more. :)
I try to speak the truth.
Now I'm learning to paint it.
Someday I'll sell it..LOL
What I really seek is balance but I couldn't find that word.
Perhaps it will come with another painting/collage.
What would one call my work. It's half painted/half collaged??
Or is that the essence of collage work??
I don't know...I'm still learning!
