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.

Mitzi, Violet is charming. Glad to see you back painting!
No not much winter here this year. Glad to be back in a sweater today. ;-)
Enjoy the weekend! ~ sarah

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!
