Though I've never actually met the author, Z. Rosti, I can feel her love of animals shining through this delightful tale. And through her donation of all proceeds from the sale of this book to the Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation.
MONDAY: PART TWO
"The Four Faceted Face" - mixed media on paper, each 15" by 11". Inquiries.
Now here is an intriguing project - interpret a figure (or face) in four different ways. I hadn't a clue where to begin. When in doubt, just paint, right? And so there emerged a face with a florescent underpainting to get me started. For the next three, I created a stencil (really, truly just to buy time while I figured out what to do next! Making stencils is like meditation.) and put down some gouache and watercolor just to create the basic shapes. Paint, pen and ink and collage followed.
This could become a workshop in the fall, as my brain noodles and muses and ponders hundreds of ways to interpret faces in mixed media.
But let's begin our week by channeling our inner Bailey....or Lino, in this case, who runs like the wind through the forest of the Alps.
