Delight

It was so hard for me to come up with words for this painting. I think it was a complete fail. By the time I got to thinking about what I wanted to verbalize, I was tired and out of sorts. I just wanted to finish the painting. What I should have done was let it sit and let myself think it over. I should have taken more thought over what kind of words to actually put to paper.

I’ll be changing the words on the painting but I wanted to document the process of how important it is to get it right. To take the time and deliberate over each step. The painting won’t be perfect, but it’ll be an improvement over what it was.

I did enjoy the process of this painting. I used spray inks, metallic paint, rubber stamps, patterned papers, book pages, and something new to me! Vintage sewing patterns. Can you see it?

I also did something new to her face. Extra points to those who can spot it.

All in all, an enjoyable painting despite the fiasco with the wording which I will fix sometime today. Hopefully I’ll get off my lazy ass and take some photos of the new and improved painting this week.

Aloha!

    The eyebrow/nose thing? Using old patterns is really cool. I have some that I’d gotten for the kids that may find a second life this way. Great tip!

    Guess you’re feeling a little better if you’re painting. Good.

    What’s wrong with “delightful”?

    Well I don’t know what you were going for so no comment on the words but the painting is cute! She looks very proper, and somewhat innocent.
