Mixed Media: Addicted to Love

I’m playing with mixed media this week, and calling this one “Addicted to Love” after Robert Palmer’s famous video.

Of course, my girl here is just a little bit more frumpy than those girls in the video, but frumpy needs attention, too! LOL

I started with a canvas and put different papers on it, including music sheets, patterns, and book pages. Then I added some yellow, red, and orange color.




After that I started painting my girl. She has her hair slicked back and her eyes shut. Perhaps she is grooving out to Robert Palmer in her mind. You never know.




Finally, I added her lips and dress. She’s a bit “thick” around the middle. Then again, aren’t we all? But I like her anyways.

    Aww, just in time for Valentine’s. I love the colors and the way you layered the background. I’m learning the hard way, that’s not as easy as it looks!
