ReMixed Media: Martian Girl

This is a funny kind of other-worldly looking thing. It got left in the bin of unfinished pieces for a year.  I was learning from Mindy Lacefield about applying color and marks to create background elements.

A year went by. I pulled this out and added some hair and a body. I can’t believe how sweet she turned out! I really enjoy the freedom of mark-making in the background.

Every weekend comes, and I’m so eager to get back into my art room and go deep, fast and find that perfect spot where every piece comes together. Its so hard when pieces don’t work out. I’ll feel mopey and go eat a lot of treats and make more early gray tea…that’s usually when something comes through.

Here’s a little quote I’ve been loving lately.
“She said she usually cried at least once each day not because she was sad, but because the world was so beautiful & life was so short.” ~ brian andreas
