I collaged pages from The Farmer’s Hat with other papers and added this farm girl.

In this piece, I used a Mindy Lacefield style of adding, dabbling, scraping, dotting, and randomly letting go with favorite mediums and colors. Then I found a space for a girl reaching for a bird and painted that in. I like her gentle face.

  1. You are inspiring me to push my work on faces…to loosen my grip on something I can’t quite put my finger on! These pieces are stunning. Just stunning!

    1. Jen, thank you for your enthusiasm about these little faces! Painting “raw” without a lot of fussing has been a direction I’ve been on. Its hard to let go, but so worth it, ha ha. Thanks again.
