JUST BE YOURSELF….

Just BeI created this picture for Bethany as a reminder to be who God created her to be.

Lady in green Continuing to practice what I learned from Dina Wakley.  When I took her online class she mentioned an artist by the name of Tina Berning and a book she did titled “100 women on Cheap Paper”. after looking Tina Up I was inspired me to look for something unusual to draw on.   I found these old Scan Tron ballot sheets in my office that were used a couple of years ago and decided to do a series of faces on them.  I always had test anxiety when we had to take test in school so some of them will reflect that.  I drew about 25 faces in one evening and I am now in the process of going back and collaging them in a book.    I continue to use Dina Wakley’s paint and even one of her masks in this collage.   I also used a Tim Holtz stamp for the phrase that is at the bottom.  Hope you enjoy.

Dina Wakley was in the city a few weeks ago and I as unable to go.  So I took an online class with Dina Wakley and I can’t seem to stop drawing faces. She is a great teacher and makes you believe that you can draw anything you want to. I will be posting some of my favorites over the next few weeks for you to enjoy. Most of faces are painted with Dina Wakley paint from Ranger. The paint is so and rich and thick I really enjoy working with it. I hope you enjoy my drawing journey.
