As I promised, I am starting an alphabet series of ladies and their hats! This is the first, and I was experimenting with color. That explains the colors of blue and purple in her face, but I really liked the result! So, here is Anna and Her Hat, which matches her flower brooch. (That is sooo me, I love the way women dressed in the 40's, all the fab accessories...I collect and wear them all)...I punched out flower shapes from old newspaper and glued them to the canvas. Then, I added some paint to add color and dimension.
She is painted on an oval shape of wood that I will use for the series..I found out I absolutely LOVE to paint on wood!!! And I added some glitter nail polish to her flowers, but it does not show up on my scan of the painted piece.
