Woman with braids and 3 ACEO

Here are some pictures of the woman with braids and pots. I made her very colorful! She deserved a lot of attention after sitting unfinished for such a long time :o)

I am also working on 3 ACEOs for the Earth Day challenge in Pam's blog:

I better hurry and finish them!

More images after the brake....
This is the way I left the painting for a long time. At that point I was not sure if I wanted to start all over or what. I was working on dolls at the moment.

Some details:

  A nice glaze of fresh blue for the sky, showing the brush strokes nicely

It was fun to paint the clay pots, and the polka dots!

She's ready to be listed in my shop now.
Thanks for visiting see you soon!
