oil on 6 x 8 inch paper
When I am working on the WIP I shared in the last post with the seven little faces and my eyes start to cross, I have to work on something larger. Can you tell I overcompensated on these faces? They are HUGE. It could be my rebellion against the teeny tiny faces, but it could also be that I worked in oils. Not my forte', but oh they feel marvelous on paper! These were really quick works too, so don't be surprised if they end up in one of my shops for cheap cheap once they are dry.

oil and marker on 6 x 8 inch paper
On compositions: the first painting I used a lovely magazine ad to aid with the layout of the woman, but then went sort of crazy with the flowers and clothes. On the second painting here, I used my imagination 100%. I have a thing for houses right now (they are in the background) and I love painting them. Here I just scratched them into the painting and went over it with a marker very lightly.
QUICK QUESTION (for my blogging friends): Do you reply to comments via your blog, by email, or not at all? And why? I am going back and forth on this one and if you haven't noticed, I haven't been replying at all unless asked a direct question. I have preferred to spend the time visiting blogs, but I fear I am being rude by not responding on the comments on my own blog. This is an overdue question I know since I've been blogging over a year and half now, but I would love your feedback...tell me your thoughts.
Have a great weekend everyone!
