I just wasn't happy with my monitor lizard - so do over! Gesso is an artist's best friend - (at least one of them - I have a quart and a half in my studio!) So - I gessoed over the lizard and started adding more torn dictionary pages and stenciling - until this little lady made me happy. Some acrylic paint stenciled; some Silks; a little Inka Gold and a swarovski crystal later I liked her much better. Might have a little more work to do on her - and she did get to keep a flower! By the way - my first blog post was September 23rd 2011! I am a year old! Thanks for visiting - love all your comments!
