Hi you fabulous Willowing and artsy followers! I just can't stand dwelling on negative happenings so I must try to get a tiny amount of relief in my studio. I have not had much time to work on my Goddess but I will show you my progress so far...
I had glued a bunch of collage papers and fabrics on to her dress but it wasn't right. So I ripped and scraped most of it off and then tried to smooth it over with heavy gel medium. I covered up the mess a little with my silver sage color but I am not sure where I am headed with the dress at this point.
The texture is not smooth any longer like I wanted it to be and I still need to make adjustments to the color of the dress and work on the background too. I still have a ways to go and I'm thinking that Klimt is NOT my style! LOL!
I do love her hair and her halo. It looks much prettier in person and the colors are so much nicer too. I took this photo last night under one weak light. I am very happy with the color scheme - it goes perfectly in my living room.
I really don't want to work this large again any time soon. It was just too much too soon in the class I think. I've now depleted my paint supplies and have become tired of the energy and time necessary to work this big canvas. A 20x24 would have been so much better for this project.
So it's looking like I will have a little time tonight to spend in the studio and spin some tunes. Oh how I have missed it this week!!! I just wish I could dig my way to the packed boxes of cd's in the garage - I have over 500! - but I haven't the slightest idea where they are. The nice stereo is out there somewhere too. Soon I will be making that a priority!
Thank you all for your continued support as I trudge through my scary and hectic life right now.
I love you all! Jessica
