Work in progress

I thought I'd write a blog post about my latest painting while my !#*!! computer was still working! Someone set me up with wireless internet, and it is crappy! it cuts out, it is slow, and I haven't sworn this much in a very long time.
I can't wait until Monday, I am going back to my old dependable modem -unless my internet provider can get in here and figure out what is going wrong.

Tomorrow is my little sis's birthday, and I started this painting very late. She loves my Winking Diva paintings, but wants larger ones for her living room, so I am attempting to get this done by tonight. It is 12 x 24, and this is where I am at.
I tried something different this time, I based the background with a wash of Nickel Azo yellow, then loosely added a creme paint on top, and now have added tissue. I am undecided where to go with this, but I am thinking of having it mostly creme and neutrals, sort of like a wintry scene. I think I will collage butterflies, and maybe birds in her hair and around the background...who knows. Unfortunately I am planning this around the colors of her living room, which is not what I normally do.
I suppose I should get back to work, this isn't getting done on it's own, lol!
I will show the finished painting once I get it done.
Hope you all are having a great weekend!
