Artwords---Botanical


5 x5

"Betty"

I decided to pull out a transparency sheet I made a week or so ago and play with it. (Notice it is the same little girl as the last post. I just played around with different croppings and sizes. Her eyes are what draw me in...and I can't seem to move on but I promise next piece, new image . ****lol)
It was fun to pull scraps of paper and move them around til they felt right. I glued them down to watercolor paper with a glue stick, placed the transparency on top and sewed it into place with a bit of black embroidery thread. After that I added a silk leaf that has been sitting on my table for a few months waiting to be used.

And now since it is almost one in the morning and I have to get up a six, I should probably turn in...
Nightie night!

Tricia these are wonderful. I always love when you work with transparencies. She is a beautiful little girl. I would want to use her over again too. I wanted to comment on your Artwords entry to the woman theme also. I think she looks fabulous and you are a very talented painter! I can't wait to see the whole piece. Your work just keeps me in awe:) Love, Jamie

haunting and very beautiful. Strong and dramatic composition too with the cropping you did. I often use my images over and over again, but each time it's different. I think that practice allows us to explore a subject even further.
