Painted in ArtRage digital painting software.

Take a Word Challenge - Blue

For this week's blue theme I chose a black and white photo of actress, Maude Fealy, whose face was perfection.  I laid it over random water colour effects and added a word overlay by Lauren Bavin.  "Diamonds" by Jofia Devoe.Texture filters also used.

Three Muses Challenge - Autumn

My seasons blend in one to another with very little change in the landscape.  I once had the opportunity to tour New England in the fall and it was one of the greatest experiences of my life.  I painted the face and shoulders and cut the dress from background papers and leaves.  The feet and legs were Googled.  Background and twiggy tree by Jofia Devoe.  Quote by Stanley Horowitz.

Take a Word Challenge - Zetti

This is my interpretation of Zetti.  I really have no idea what I'm doing but I did have fun doing it. Crown and heart by Fiddlette, gesso and stamps by Tangie Baxter.  The rest by me.
