What I’m doing now…

I finished this piece yesterday.  I had a pencil sketch of this girl from several months ago. I painted it and then outlined it with India ink.  The background was all blotchy,  so,  I cut her out and glued her in my Strathmore journal.  The background is collage pieces from old magazines.  I liked the sketch best….oh well 😀   I signed up for Traci Bautista’s  latest class on Sunday.  I have taken almost all her classes…I like her style.  I have been on the fence about taking it for about a month.  I’m sure I’ll be posting some journal pages from this class in the future.  You can check out her regular blog here.  Here’s my journal page:

    I should not have stopped by for a visit, I need to be outside doing gardening. Looking at these posts of such lovely work, and I do favor those circles in a couple posts down, but this woman and your composition are so pretty,
    so just right and together. Just a lift to come here today, but I still have to go outside.

    Amazing work, Mary!
    There’s so much depth fro combining all those layers – this almost seems 3-D! Great piece! 🙂

    That’s a great sketch! I like how you added it to the background.

    Which class are you taking?
