September 14 - Butterflies on My Nose
"Butterfies on My Nose!" This lighthearted, illustrative creation came off the brushes today as an example of collage painting with acrylics, and it has such a lighthearted feeling that I thought you'd enjoy it. Done on canvas board, it contains hand-made papers, yarn, tulle, gold and copper flakes, iridescent paint and added collage elements. She is the "Lady in Purple" and reminds me of everyone's eccentric great aunt! She originated without planning after the first layer of string suggested the outrageous profile. The butterflies were added and the name suggested itself. Original acrylic, 12 x 9
SOLD from the Daily Paintings for September for this date.
