My fingers have been itching to create something new, but I've been so involved with cleaning out my mother's house, helping Ava move, and spring cleaning my own house that I haven't had the energy to do more that walking into my studio and sit down at the computer. My brain feels clutterd with all the "stuff" I've put my hands on this week. This is a photograph I took of a wig stand that I painted last year. Her name is Ava (as in Gardener, not my sister) I altered the color of the photograph to use as an element in a collage I'm working on, and I was intrigued with its painterly effect, after I changed the color saturation. You can see Ava in her natural state in the studio pictures below. So I'm posting it for the Art on the Darkside Mannequin challenge, Theme Thursday Glamour Girl challenge, and One Powerful Hour's circle challenge. Maybe next weekend I'll have time to work on the actual collage or finish one of the three other paintings I have in prgress.
