True Colors

Self Portrait
Self-Portrait 12 X 12 acrylic, ink, oil pastel, and charcoal on canvas board

For about a week, I've been working on a great big abstract in these yummy colors. Since I had a lot of paint left on my palette, I thought it might be fun to do a Klee-style self portrait on a stray canvas board I had lying around the studio. A friend of mine said it kinda looked like the inside of my head while I'm dreaming of the ocean. She knows me pretty well, right? This painting is avaiable, so, if you're interested, just send me an e-mail at kathymccullen@aol.com. You can see my big WIP below.

WIP

for Illustration Friday and Paint Party Friday.
