Here is a slice of yesterday's work. As in ART play. It is a "Sisters" painting. I was responding to a call for black and white art. So, this is all I can show for now. But you know I can't stand not showing something and it will be a long wait if it makes it in the Jan 2009 issue of Somerset Studio. I'm way ahead...that's good.
Now, let me tell you how "out of the box" I was while trying to make "black and white" art. If you have visited for a while, you know I'm about color. Lots.
I converted the sister images to black and white for transferring. I really enjoyed painting on them but oh my gosh, I had a hard time resisting dipping into just and teeny bit of color. Didn't though.
One thing always leads to another for me; so, I decided to start another "Sisters" using the black and white face images. Here's a little preview of "Sisters in Their Nightgowns". I know you just love seeing the beginning. Oh heck I think it is me who just loves showing. By the way, their nightgowns are various napkins but the feed sack clothes of my youth popped into my head. Some you you may know what I'm talking about. That's a whole other story.
Enough for now,
