(I won’t even mention about being gone a while,I always feel like mentioning it will make me update more often…but it doesn’t. It’s like whenever I’m trying to lose weight and someone says that it looks like I’ve dropped a few pounds and I instantaneously gain five pound before I can either deflect the compliment or say thank you. Some things are just better let unsaid or unthought…or whatever.)
I started painting a fairy series during January and left them to start the stuff for the 80’s show. I imagined that I would pick up fairies again after I finished with that but ….I had a sudden urge to paint angels. The virtues or my take on the Virtues to be more specific.
I painted this one first and she’s a mixed media of collaged paper and acrylics. I call her angel of the broken hearts. Not sure I’m 100% happy with her face which was inspired by a very famous photo but that I’m just not sure about for now. Sometimes I just have to let things sit before I know what to do.
This is my angel of Grace. Again she is made of collaged papers and acrylic and slightly based on a certain favorite actress of mine. I don’t like to say who because I’m a bit of a Frankenstein in that I will borrow eyes that I like from someone or a lip or a face shape,but I don’t like to base anything on someone completely and I try to work from memory as much as possible,it’s funner to see what I end up with that way. (But she may have had breakfast in a jewelry store once. )
This is my angel in progress. I’ve used no faces for inspiration at all on this one. She’s going to be my Ariel,angel of animals and nature and I have loads to do on her still. I find myself wanting to use watercolors again but I would really like to finish her before starting anything new!
Do you ever have trouble finishing an idea/project?
