Four Quick Paintings...

It's coming back slowly...I pulled out some more unfinished projects and painted today. These were done on the sides of a saltine cracker box. The long rectangular shape was what I liked about this cardboard...

 When I pulled them out of my WIP box they were just lightly sketched onto the cardboard.





They turned out okay. I didn't do much to their faces...just the basic stuff but I like them. Some of the backgrounds are better than others but I think the girls look cute. I hope you like them, too.

  1. They are so sweet, Janet! From a distance the girl in the blue shirt was my favorite (I DO love your tilted-head girls, don't I?), but when you showed them one by one, I really like ALL of them quite well. I can't believe you use a Saltine-box substrate...now, that's creative re-use!

  2. Janet, these are truly beautiful. This kind of paintings are your watermark for me. Somehow you always get your girls to look individual. I simply love them all!

  7. These ladies are so lovely and expressive. Welcome back! I never throw any of my empty food boxes away now, as they are always so great for painting on, at no extra cost.

  11. I really like these - like a group of gal pals! Great idea to use the cracker box as your substrate. The mojo is back!
