Day 29 of 30 Paintings in 30 Days!

"College Finals Week"       11" x 11"      $145
I guess I may as well admit it; my favorite medium is collage!  Whenever I add collage to my paintings, I become completely immersed in the process and hours pass, without even having hunger pains! I had a total different plan when I started this painting.  But one thing I've learned over the years is to adapt to your painting.  When it's telling you something, listen!  Below is my wild underpainting, and my value sketch. But when I got to the mid stage, I noticed the circle rainbow shape that was behind her head and I thought, "go with it".  (see photo 3 below) I would love to do a large painting of this image!


  1. Love your style and it would be great on a LARGE canvas! I enjoy all of your work. Kay

  2. Thanks, Kay! I love your paintings too!

  3. Fabulous and I am glad you listened to the painting. Hmm, larger would be fab, too!

  4. Thanks so much for sharing your process. All of your paintings would be awesome an a large canvas! I love all the patterns running throughout. :)
