|Almost finished WIP|
16 x 20" mixed media on cradled wood
Lately I've been saying to myself, "Lisa, you need to layer more in your paintings. Stop finishing them too soon!" And that is what I've been doing with this one...trying not to finish it too soon.
I can't believe I am admitting on a public blog that I talk to myself, but I am guessing every artist does. Am I right? Come on, admit it.
By the way, my husband says the larger revealed area in the pink dress is too distracting. Do you think he's right? I think it looks like part of her dress, but I've been looking at this painting so darn long, my eyes are crossed.
I took a break from painting Saturday and went to the Wichita Art Museum with my mom. We saw an exhibit called Paul Cezanne's Apples, but not one painting was by Paul Cezanne. Go figure. The whole exhibit consisted of some excellent still life paintings by other artists, and the exhibit title was only about Paul's quote "with an apple, I will astonish Paris". Okay, whatever. But it really was a great exhibit.
Doesn't my mom look great?

I have been trying to do some drawing too using the old photos that were gifted to me. I was looking at this woman and WOW is she gorgeous. Remove her glasses, take her hair down, put some modern clothing on her and she would be a fashion model.

And lastly, I got new slippers. I just thought you would want to know.
