I hope you all had a wonderful Holiday! Christmas was wonderful here, although I was hoping we would get some snow. I painted so much in December that it was strange to not create for the last week. I cleared my creative throat yesterday and got back into the swing of things. Felt good to get back to work!
This is another painting I am working on right now. She has a soft, distressed, sort of shabby feel. It is hard to see in this photo but her face is made of rough blocks of color. I think I am going to leave it like that- I usually do a smooth over layer but I am feeling sort of "rough and beautiful" we'll see. I haven't filled in the foreground yet. I just love the background it has such a raw, romantic feeling. I hope to have her up for auction tomorrow.
