Hello Kittens! Happy Paint Party Friday: here's the progress of my latest piece! She's still in flux, but I'm getting excited about the results. (You can click the image for a larger view.) I started working into the acrylic with watercolors, pencil and nail polish and the resulting surface has become pretty sumptuous.
I've never made a painting like this. It's a combination of ideas, new territory. I like to think that she is an Island--that objects and energies are sprouting from her, or maybe she's dreaming them...
The view here is slightly skewed, but I wanted to show how the nail polish acts like a spot varnish. The irises of her eyes and some of the shapes in the foreground are sparkly. The polish really souped up the color and acts as a blender. Another reason to love GLITTER!!
I just started sketching in this little pink deer. I haven't decided if I'm in love with it yet, but the tiny floating islands definitely need some wildlife. Thoughts anyone?
I am anxious to see what sort of creative kung-fu you've all been up to this week! I haven't been able to visit all of you as often as I'd like, but I appreciate all of your heART support in the past weeks. Much Love, Paint and Rock and Roll, Cupcakes!
