Succulent...


This is one of the pieces I created while visiting my friend Debbie. It is a mixed media piece I created with acrylics, oil pastels, and collage on mdf. It is one of two that I created to donate to the Hubbard Hall art sale. I tried to mimic the acrylic face painting technique that Cindy Dean showed on her blog, taught by DJ Pettit. Since I only guessed the technique based on a few photos, I am sure it could be better, but I was not altogether unhappy with this piece. Debbie and her husband Len liked the other piece I did better, but I didn't like the expression on her face at all - I will be posting that one tomorrow so you can tell me what you think.

I do like the expression on this one Kerri! She has a dreamy look to her yet it almost appears she's a little puzzled about her thoughts; I read a lot into her eyes. I think you've captured the skin tones very well; great use of white. Love her mid-section there, too. Terrific!

This is great, Kerri! I love the face and the shirt. She has a thought provoking expression.

I love her. She is very serene.
