I've been so busy, I've not had much time to do any art of my own. However, I found two canvases that my daughter had retrieved from the "throwing out bin" at Uni. So I recycled them to create two pieces of art....one is unfinished as I've just not had any time.
The art work that was originally on these canvases was very abstract and mostly blocks of colour. I toned it down with some gesso and painted a face. I added "hair" using collaged napkins and then doodled on them with a white gel pen. The colours are alot more vibrant in reality.
My unfished picture shows more of the background that had been previously,
I will add hair at some point. I really like adding collaged flowers for the hair,
but I can't decide how to add them to this painting as yet.
This is a painting I did a while ago but instead of tissue paper I recycled some floral wrapping paper I'd received with a present. The butterfly was cut from a glossy magazine.
I think this is one of my favourite paintings I've done.
