A Challenge and a Bit of Mystique....

I'm stumped! Most of this weekend has been taken up with an assignment from the Paint Free class I'm taking. Not to give away too much about the class, it involves taking one of my previous paintings and doing something else over it. Now I'm not concerned with covering the painting with something else but my problem comes from not being able to see anything else there except what I've already done. It's supposed to be a bit like "pulled" art. This is the painting I'm supposed to cover after I find some pulled art....



No matter what way I twist or turn it, all I see is what's there already. I'm driving myself crazy with this one!!

********************************************
And yesterday's NaNoJouMo word was mystique. I started something in my big new journal but it's far from finished. This is what I have so far....



This journal is the one I recently won. It has several kinds of paper in it and this page I'm working on is somewhat slick. I'm having trouble getting the face to look smooth but I'm still working on it. I hope you can see what I have sketched out. I think she will be a good match for "mystique"....what do you think?

Now for the rest of the afternoon I'm going to work on the Art, Heart and Healing class. I promise to have some visiting time soon. I'm just getting snowed under with all my classes and I can't keep up with everything. Bear with me....

  5. Janet,

    Sometimes with pulled art I don't see anything, sometimes I think nothing is there and other times its really evident what is there. When I don't see anything, I use the piece like background paper and just put something over it. Good Luck with it.

  7. I see robots. The one on the right has a pink head with 3 eyes.
    The one on the left has one big eye and two switches on its face.

  9. I know you will find what it is all about. You have been so busy...that is a very good thing. I have been working on so many things for Christmas and stuff around the house. We are having a big gathering for the holiday and I have so much to do.
    Happy Fall Dear Friend, thinking of you with love, Mary

  10. You ARE busy. Yep, I see robots too, and speakers lol, but don't let that influence you. Mystique looks really interesting, so can't wait to see her done.

  11. Love Mystic, she is going to be gorgeous. As for the paint over one, I stared at it for a while and I am with you, I see what is there. That is a tough assignment.

  12. Wish I had time to get involved with all those things you do. Looks like fun even if you are pondering over the piece. It'll come to you!
    Have a great week.

  13. I see buildings with a fence, also the letter T. Twist the painting around and look at it at different angles. Tape it to the wall in front of the tub when you bathe...and just meditate with it....something will come!

    Hugs Giggles
