|She dreams of flight|
|face close up|
She was painted over an old painting that just didn't work - thus all the texture in the balloon. I just used map stencils along with old atlas pages on her face and other stencils in the balloon background. The map stencils on her face were sprayed with Liquitex white spray paint - I just love it because if you spray lightly you get this slightly ghostly coverage. I am proud of the ears because they look like ears - LOL! The balloon showed up first and the idea of the flying lady head just came to me as I was looking at the painting.
I am linking to Jenn Mclean's Artist Play Room (here) - the theme was the word bizarre - thought this painting fit the bill. I am also linking to Paint Party Friday (here) hosted by the fabulous Eva and Kristin. Check both of these sites to see the fantastic art posted there - better yet join in yourself on this or the next round. Thanks so much for stopping by and have a blessed, art-filled weekend.
