Recently, I have painted a lot. It seems to help me to get through these sometimes confusing times after my Dad died. It is strange to be so far away, on the other hand it helps as well. I don't think I've talked so much with family in Germany, especially my brother, on the phone as I did over the past few weeks.
But back to the painting. I already told you how much I love to work with watercolor crayons, and those crayons were my main tools in all the little paintings I created. There are ATCs and tiny paintings that I attached to cardstock and thus made some bookmarks. But there is also Life Book with Tam, and I enjoy the lessons so much, especially Tam's lessons. She is such a funny and at the same time serious and deep person, I always feel that I get a lot out of her lessons.
And so my girl for week 10 emerged. The theme was "positive connections", but I didn't write them in my painting. Sometimes I feel shy to put these inner feelings out into the public.
We started out with some collage and a girl we found in a magazine or catalog etc. I found "my girl" in one of the Gudrun Sjoden catalogs that I like so very much. It looked like this:
Then we painted over it, created our girl out of the magazine girl. Since I liked her face quite a bit I decided not to go too far away from it and basically kept her face.
Here she is.
Since it is Friday I'm linking with Paint Party Friday, glad to join this group of talented artists. It's their third blogoversary!!! Congratulations!
