Paint Party Friday.....




Hi, Happy Friday and Happy PPF! I did this painting this week in Heather Murray's 'Minnie...A Maxi Mixed  Media Painting Workshop' on TheTroddenPath. This is collage and acrylics on wood, the face is a vintage photo that I painted over to give her life and then the body of her dress was created with acrylic paints.  Loved doing this painting and am starting a second one today. It was alot harder than I thought it would be to create a body for her with just acrylic paint on a narrow background. I'm hoping the next one will flow a little better...but I'm very happy with this one and loved learning something new!

Have a great weekend!
