Golden Girl Painting

Ahhh finally, a finished piece,the first in 20 years!!

This is a multi media artwork. I first made an interesting background with sheet music then made some transfers and added them. Next I painted over this with blue, added more transfers and other images. With my background done I started painting the face with acrylics. A few more transfers in the foreground and finally a finished piece.

Well, I say finished but I always see something else I can touch up or add...but I'm not going to. I'm going to try and stop fiddling endlessly.

I'm pretty happy with my first effort and can't wait to start my next one.

More Art

Spring has arrived and my fingers are working overtime making jewellery. However,

last month I found a great art website and it inspired me to get my paints out and start some artwork. I don't have a special plan, I'm just playing around with different mediums and techniques.

I must be mad!!!!! this is the worst time of year to start anything new but I'm having sooooo much fun I just can't put it away.

The pictures I'm posting are artworks in progress..not finished works... but interesting to see the progression.
