My Little Grungy Girl


It has been such a long time since I made a folk art painting, I thought I should do something a bit different. It was interesting working on this, I didn't quite know what to do with my background, so I dirtied it up, and gave it a shabby primitive look. If you were to see how many sketches of folk art girls I have in my folders, I think you would be shocked. Dozens of them waiting to be born, but alas, they will have to wait. Too many things to do, so little time!!!

Meanwhile, I just finished my newest mixed media Alice painting, after many, many hours! One day I should keep track of the hours I spend on each painting, it would be interesting to know how long they take. If I could stop being so finicky about every little detail, I am sure I would get more done. Anyway, I will show her either tomorrow or the next day, once she is scanned.

She's wonderful, talking to her little blue bird! I like the background. Looks like it's crackled towards the bottom.
