Mixed Media: Superhero Glasses

I just picked up some 10 x 10 canvasses at Michael’s this week, and couldn’t wait to break into them. I started by covering the canvas with some different papers, book pages, and music sheets. Then I added some stamps and the beginnings of the face.

I liked where that “faith” stamp ended up, and I wanted it to be on her dress, but more subtlety than it was here. So I dabbed it with paper towel and water, and then painted the dress over it.



She started out blonde, but then I started to hate her coloring. So I added some darker color, but kept her eyes and skin really light. She instantly appeared to me like one of those chicks who wears just a little too much lipstick, a too-tight sweater, and glasses that look ridiculous but she loves them anyway. (I guess you can never stop being a writer, even when you’re crafting.)

So I started on her glasses, and I liked them because they looked like a superhero mask on her. Can you just see her flying in to help out a person in need?



I gave the picture to my writing partner Genevieve, and she gave it some serious consideration….



…. and then decided that it passed her muster.

    What an intelligent dog and a wise art critic too. You will soon have enough of these powerful looking women for an exhibit. Wouldn’t that be a cool theme?

      What would we do without our doggies? LOL Thanks for the inspiration, Eileen! That would be very cool to do an exhibit. I would love that.
