Monday marked day 1 of the SheArt2 class taught by Christy Tomlinson - I took the first SheArt class and made this girl who had no face. However,
in this class we are learning how to paint faces - Week one includes eyes, noses and mouths. (Doesn't this girl look a little like Anne Hathaway with blue eyes? - just step back about 10 feet and squint your eyes - do you see the resemblance now?)
Today I played and painted two girls and I am amazed at how they turned out!! Seriously - they look kinda like people - WHOO HOO for me!!
Their faces/hair are painted - their clothes are paper pieced.
Rub-ons, stamps and markers add details -
I should probably quit while I am ahead - Did I ever tell you about the time my mom and I decided to take up tole painting? Donna Dewberry was in NO danger of losing her job to either of us! Mom and I gathered up our supplies and got down to business and the best work I ever produced was on a paper plate!! YUP - I still have that paper plate to this day - 10 years later - (Mom, are you embarrassed for me?)
That was the finest outcome I had produced in my "painting life" other than the many pieces of furniture that I have repurposed by repainting. These girls look more like people than my "rose" looked like a flower!
