Today was Journeys day!
This past year our wonderful little art group has gone through some major changes - not all good, not all bad - but we have survived and hopefully this will be our best year yet. I say this is the 2015 project because our due date isn't until April 2015. We have a year... that's more than enough time right?!! [insert mischievous cackling laugh here]
I'm super excited about our project. We are calling it Famous Female Faces. I LOVE THIS! I have been wanting to create a Lucille Ball quilt for some time now - and she works perfectly for this project. Did I mention I am so freaking excited!
So here is my inspiration photo:
I absolutely love this photo. It shows her beauty while still capturing her comedic personality.
So on to how -- me, still being in my grey phase immediately wanted to paint this exactly how it is - grey scale, black background, white highlights, etc. Hmmm.... although artistically challenging, it seems too simple - why not push the envelope. So, I'll be trying a new-to-me technique. I'll be sharing the journey - problems and all as it progresses.
You'll have to stay tuned for more on this one!
