Work In Progress
Thought I'd share with you a 16 x 20 canvas work in progress. She's a princess that will be holding a cute frog, there will be more sky put in (using scrapbook paper), a tree to the left and a castle up on the hill to the right.
I have lots more shading and tweaking to do but this is where I'm at so far.
I get asked every fall to donate a piece to the Farmer's Bowl auction. I get discouraged because people will pay $350 for a $300 gift certificate somewhere and not always appreciate the time and effort put into art. I don't know at this point if I'll donate this or put it on etsy. I keep thinking that people will possibly bid on this for a child or grandchild?
I have much more blending to do on her face. Funny how I can miss that sometimes until I see a photo! Is anyone else like that?
Her dress is painted and then I added white rub-on transfers.......turned out cute I think :)
I'm headed to Grand Forks today to get some supplies and visit the Farmer's market. FUN!!
