Day 9 already of Get Your Art On!! Today was shopping day and lunch with my Mom day, but I did work on the canvas with the bird on it - covered it all up (it was my least favorite). I chose one of my fav photos of my daughter, CJ, and printed it out in B&W. Now I think I did almost everything the opposite of what it said to do in the book, I didn't use laser printing, I didn't have liquid graphite, I didn't use gel medium, so I just did what I wanted, painted right over top of the photo (around the edges mostly, and on her clothing) and this is what I got:
I don't think it's quite finished, I have to look at it for awhile, but I really love it - or is it that I love her? I thought I'd do the same type of thing as my next page in my journal and went looking for a face to use -any face - and I just kept going back to her, so she will be my next portrait in my journal. I must miss her a lot!! I like the idea of painting on top of the photo.
