|acrylic on mat board - 10 x 10|
Recently, I picked up some of my very old art stuff that had been in storage away from our home. Nine big bins of mostly jewelry making supplies. Yet, there was one bin that was labeled - paint box, books, art supplies, palette.... I knew I had a paint box with acrylic paints - but I had forgotten that they were hardly used and had all the colors a girl would need to get started - including brushes. They come from - dare I say - 30 years ago from an art class elective I had taken. They seem OK and in good shape. I needed them for the bird house project and well, since they were still out and available on the worktable - why not work with them a little more?
I have a thing for faces - for pop art faces. I've been trying for quite a while to make these work in wax and its hard. I'm thinking that if I learn to do it in acrylic, maybe I can translate it to wax. This is probably my best attempt so far and I still have 26 faces to go to complete the 29 Faces project.
This lovely lady has a girlfriend AND a boyfriend that are started and will make their way here soon - but I also can't forget about the wax :) - so here's a quickie for number
