Portrait Complete!

Broken But Not Lost
And she is completed...
12 x 12 Mixed Media Portrait on 1 1/2 inch canvas. Layers of color include yellow, gray white, turquoise, green and black. Enhanced with charcoal, graphite pencil and gel pen. Collage first layer. Hanging hardware applied, and varnish with spray matte for longevity. Signed and dated by the artist

If I told you the story behind this portrait, you'd never believe me. Suffice to say, someone I loved disappointed me or betrayed me is an even better word for it, for the last time.

Good does come from bad--and even though I have been broken, I am not going to be lost.

I'm working on something to jump start my art online again, stay tuned for a big challenge for me coming in January!

I think you've literally poured your heart out on this one! It says it all! Art is therapy and I know I'm thankful I have it in my life to express my feelings out on a canvas!

You already sound stronger! Best always and I did see your article in CPS - very nice and it was helpful.

I look forward to your offerings in the new year! Have a good one! Marilyn
