Oil Painting on Collage

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.

Love your "paper dolls" series. I have done a small amount of collage (thanks to Derek, he is local) but you are taking it to a new level with your addition of paints. very cool!

I really like this one, Mitzie! I love how you painted the face, with bits of red and blue, especially that blue highlight on her chin. Beautiful!

This is so beautiful and exciting - and I love the oil painting over collage - gorgeous!
