I started a whole different piece this morning for PPF...but it just wasn't happening :0( I couldn't concentrate....couldn't draw and just out and out wasn't in the mood for it.
So I decided to work on backgrounds for my journal to see what happened there.
Things went more smoothly there :0)
After doing several pages I decided I wanted to work on this one.
I had glued a map of our town and surrounding areas to the page and then colored over it with soft pastels and matte gel medium.
Then I painted a face in it...no hair or body...just a face floating in the color.
Kind of how I've been feeling the past week....
I let it set for several hours and came back to it. I decided it wanted feathers for hair :0)
I have a nice collection of feathers I've collected while working and playing in the yard...No way was I using any of those....so I arranged several of them on my scanner and then printed them. I tore them off the paper and then glued them down with more gel medium.
All in all I like it and now that it's done and posted maybe I'll get out of my "fibro funk" and feel better.
Maybe if I spent less time drinking wine through a Twizzler at concerts....
... and more time concentrating on my art..I wouldn't get in these 'fibro funks'
But the concert and time with my daughter was worth it !!! :0)
