Journeys Thru Art - 2015 Project

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!
