I'm so intrigued by mixed media art, I thought I would give it a go. This one includes acrylic, oils,
oil pastels, charcoal, and fine glitter accenting the flowers and the tower. I designed the dress myself. How do you like it? Now I just need to go to Michael's to buy some fun stencil for my next piece!

Progress on New Sitting Lady Painting




Here's what's on my easel today. It's an 18x24; larger than what I've been doing lately. It feels good to work on a larger canvas! So freeing (is that a word?) 

I'm going to leave the background alone…well I'm going to try to at least. It's hard to resist overpainting, 
but I want this to have a raw feeling.  She still needs work on her arms as right now she looks armless. They are resting on the sofa, so you basically all you see are her shoulders. I think her hands will be on her head, but will be very vague. More work needed on her dress. This is my favorite part. I love painting folds in fabric, especially beautiful dresses like this one.
