Well...it's a beautiful rainy day today! Really, though, I do love the rain and the cool of autumn. Warm enough that you don't quite have to bundle up, but chilly enough that you can wear those lovely sweaters.(:
And besides...even if the weather outside is frightful, it's always so nice and cozy inside. ^^
Anyway, I wanted to share one of my more recent mixed-media projects, a little painting and a little collage. So I tore up some sheet music, article pages, and phone book pages, using them for the background, then took a woman's profile and a bunch of flower clippings, glued it all together on a porcelain tile, and went crazy with paint. At the end, I added one of my tracing paper butterflies.
This was the end result:
I hadn't originally intended to make her face a silhouette, but I really like the effect it has...it makes it simpler and helps the bright flowers to stand out.
And the butterfly adds a bit of dimension...(:
What do you think? This is one of my new favorite little pieces....I have it sitting on my bookshelf perched on a miniature easel.(:
Have a lovely day!
