Nature Girl

I'm still taking the Painting Layers class with Misty Mawn and this week we did collage. I took a background from Week 1 and collaged a bunch of magazine images on it, painted over some and just let it take me where it wanted until I finally felt it was done. I'm very happy with this and thoroughly enjoyed the process of having no expectations of where it was going.

Skull Background

Here is another background I did during my class with Misty Mawn. I really like the darkness of it and the color combination. I've been having so much fun just letting myself go and not caring at all how it turns out and several times I've been really pleasantly surprised.

Running Scared

I am taking a class with Misty Mawn although we just had one lesson, I am thoroughly enjoying just playing with layers and layers of paint. The above piece is my favorite so far and it started out as a piece I was going to toss in the garbage. Sometimes that's when your best art comes forth because you really allow yourself to be free and try anything.
