(talk is her passion and chief delight)
I have been having a little play with faces, bodies, backgrounds and techniques over the last few days. I really wanted to try some different faces, usually I paint the faces separate to the backgrounds, so I wanted to try painting the face straight onto the background paper. I also wanted to try different facial features, adding small details and also words, putting a little bit more of me into my work.
I showed Hannah this one last night and she said 'it was a little scary'... but I like it. It does have a certain scariness about it though, it reminds me of some of my earlier work when I used to stitch up my girls mouths (will post more of these as they emerge and evolve).
As I was playing around last night I was aware of the big long to do list sitting next to me, yelling at me "DON'T FORGET ABOUT ME"!!! I am amazed at how fast this list got so long. It was only a few days ago that I was thinking I was on top of things. So I am going to spend a little bit of time this afternoon attacking that list and then I am taking Hannah to see Avatar... I can't hardly wait!!!
