Day 858: Saving face?




"Christy", paper collage on canvas



I am still on elf duty. 
Making these little canvases for upcoming sales.






I don't have an assembly line, but
I do work in stages.  
Stage 1 can be seen here.
Today is stage 2 ...

hair and background basics.



6 x 6" acrylic & paper collage on canvas



And, you may be noticing a common thread?
When WW and I shopped Saturday (mentioned here) ...
one of the store had this great tissue paper.






The clerk gave me extra with my purchase ...

There are other treatments ...






these are about 3/4 finished.

"Checkerhair", collage & acrylic on 4 x 4" canvas (sold)


Most faces will be simple like "Checkerhair" above.
Fun, but time consuming.







A smile for Monday ...
