Sea Siren Sue

This is my entry for a Gustav Klimt Challenge...Finally fini!!! It is painted on an 8x8" canvas board, and is a mixed media piece. I used my face from several snapshots I took and painted with acrylics, nail polish and glued on confetti papers.

Thanks to Gritty Jane DesRosier at http://grittyjane2011.blogspot.com/ for thinking of this whole fun challenge, I would have never tried this...it has opened my eyes and mind...

More of My Klimt Challenge Painting

I was able to get more work completed on my painting...I thought I would have it done and my next painting rolling along...but sometimes life takes the side roads and ...SuRpRiSe!!! You have to deal with it and let other things take the back seat for a while. I added some modeling paste to the hair for a hair-like feel...and some confetti that I glued down in pieces for the background and I still have a lot of painting and tweeking in that area, but I think I am happy with the results, so far....
