There's Something About Pink Hair....

Monday morning (or afternoon, I guess!) and I've got projects piled to the ceiling again. I love having lots of different things to work on in the studio but I don't so much like them around the house.

I must say having HB here all the time is proving to be a great help as he's jumping in and doing all kinds of things. And he's doing quite a bit of cooking which I love!!

This morning, even though I had house stuff to do, I went to the studio and messed around with a scrap of cardboard I had started painting. I layered lots of paint, a scrap of fabric, some tissue paper, masking tape....well, you get the picture....



I apologize for the quality of these photos! I couldn't seem to get any of them to come out very good. The colors are much brighter and more intense than they show here so use your imagination!

As I stood looking at the background I saw a woman appear....



And I painted her to look like this....I seem to be seeing pink hair a lot lately. Hhmmm! Maybe I should think about dyeing....NO, wait....that's not for me anymore!! I'll just keep my gray!



And here are some close-ups....



Have a fun day....

  19. Just found your site - And, oh!, the pink hair is just too cool! - Looks like something my musician son would come up with - not for him, but he suggests things like that for me. Yikes!

  21. Pretty in pink! I like her nose especially. I wonder if there'd be less plastic surgery if we all felt free to paint our faces any way we wanted? What an interesting world that might be...

  22. I love this - especially her nose. LOL Do you know - I even like the digital 'collage' you made to show the close-ups - that looks fab!

  25. You know, I SO admire that you are able to be so bold. I love color -- I wear lots of it. But my art isn't that bold. I think I get a bit afraid. This is great.

  26. She's amazing and aren't YOU clever?!! I think of my Mum re. the pink hair because, lately, her fad has been to put lipstick, yep, you read that right...LIPSTICK in her hair and it gives her hair a pink colour. She dabs the lipstick on in certain areas and then smooshes it into the hair.....it isn't sticky and works just like a dye except it can wash out ~ :)

  27. She is great...and I think Pink has gotten ahold of you. LOL
