Oil Painting on Collage

11x14, oil on mixed media

Greetings all. I would say 'happy winter' but we're not having much of that in Central Texas.  A balmy 90 degrees here yesterday.  Violet is basically the same process as before -- paper and acrylics, paper and acrylics, layer upon layer upon layer. But she's oil rather than watercolor as the Paper Dolls before her have been.  I LOVED switching the process around. Be sure to double-click on the photo to see an enlargement and to find the flowers peeking out of her cheeks!  She's on a cradled board that's about 1 1/2 inch deep and her sides are painted turquoise - like the streak on her chin.  No framing necessary.
