Paint Party Friday and 15th day of 30

Welcome Paint Party Friday! Hello to my old friends, and great to meet new visitors. I hope you click around and find something to entertain you for a while, and make you feel like coming back '(-._,•)`

I have been working like a maniac! Isn't it funny how some times you are completely blocked, and all of a sudden the muses attack you? Well, my muses are in inspiration mode so I have been busy.

This is my current mixed media painting, which had started as a close up, didn't convince me so well, so after a few weeks I painted on top and the result has me feeling happier:


This is how it looked like before, as you can see, I pretty much changed everything. I wish I had remember to take a picture in progress of when I started the changes, but I didn't. I basically added texture and collage elements with matte medium and acrylics.


And a song so you feel happy.



Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful creative weekend!
when you are ready go to the rest of the Party

  18. "attack of the muse" LOL. I just love your painting. The expression on her face is so beautiful. Every time I look at it I give it a different interpretation. Is she moved by a beautiful song? Is she overcome with grief? Is this a moment of peace and gratitude? She has a story to tell!

  22. The first thing I thought of when I saw your first painting was "be still my heart." That's the title I gave it in my mind. She is deeply moved and so am I. Very nice work!!

  23. they are both beautiful,, what a transformation

  24. I agree, both of these are beautiful, and I love the idea of your second woman dreaming of the first. Also love the "attack of the muse" I've been blocked lately too and am always glad when the muses come back to play- it's so lonely when they're away!
    Happy PPF,

  28. I liked the first version but I really like the eyes in the second. I find it really difficult to not change an entire painting too, when I feel that it's just a bit off.. My boyfriend tries to convince me it's all part of the learning :)

  29. I like them both, but the second is my fav. Love your paintings Happy PPF!
