Embrace the Face

Jo W has started a new challenge blog called Embrace the Face. Her first challenge is Tree's.

So here's my entry -

Sorry for the quality of the pic. I tried taking a photo which didn't turn out very good and then a scan...... so here's the best of the bunch.

The background is fabric squares and the girl has been painted on to fabric. This is for my fabric book swap that I'm doing on another group, but there are several other bits I want to add to the side before it is finished. Ie beads etc... just haven't quite decided what they will be yet.

Thanks for looking.

My First Exhibition Piece & MMM

We have an Exhibition in Tom Price in a few weeks time with the theme "Poetry of the Land". So gaining up all my courage, here is my piece (I think) for this Exhibition. I might do another one yet and change it slightly, not sure. Or do two pieces and put two in the Exhibition.

Any ideas on a name???? I'd love some advice. All I can think of at the mo is misty sky??? A little boring i think. Size is 24 inc x 30.

This also fits the theme for this weeks MMM which is "Show us what you love to do" which is paint of course :-)

A couple of things

Firstly, I can now share the full picture of the painting I did for my friend Dawny as she has now received it. Loved doing this one so much for you D....

Also a friend of mine Jo has started a new blog titled "Embrace the Face". Please pop on over and have a look, if you are interested in looking at painted women.

MMM - Stars

This weeks theme over at MMM is stars... ok so I'm a little early as this theme doesn't start officially until tomorrow (8th Sept), but I'm working all day tomorrow and I'm so excited about this painting, I just had to get it out 'there' NOW!! LOL I'm a wee bit impatient.....

Ok so this painting is a gift for a friend and inside the "treasure memories" frame is a picture of her children. I've blocked it out (with the red card), as she is a frequent visitor to my blog and i would like this gift to be a surprise for her.

After receiving Kelly Rae's new book - "taking flight", the idea of using a frame to place a special memory or photo inside, to make the canvas a little more personal, just appealed to me on so many levels. Thank you kelly for such a fabulous book and wonderful inspiration.
