For the past week I’ve been working on this original mixed media canvas titled, Garden Fairy. It’s a larger piece at 16″ x 20″ and I created it with the intent of submitting it for a juried gallery show with the theme, Once Upon A Time.
I had been practicing my faces quite a bit and also purchased Jane Davenport’s book Beautiful Faces, which really helped me a lot! I actually changed the face and hair after studying her book. I used Americana Acrylics, Media Line Fluid Acrylics, Media Line Misters, Andy Skinner Stencils, Silk Glaze paints, and graphite pencils.
So I’ll know in a couple of weeks of my canvas has been accepted to the gallery showing. I was definitely nervous in submitting my work, but sometimes you have to take a leap of faith and take a chance.
Thanks so much for visiting friends!
