People are always giving me discards to paint. So I sit here surrounded by large rocks, tiny pebbles, tree branches and pieces of what was once useful furniture.
I have several palm fronds that I’ve been looking at for months not knowing what to do with them. If I turned them sideways, they resembled fish. Straight up, well, they didn’t look like anything in particular. But they are unique looking and they have a surface that just cries for paint.
About a week ago, it hit me….I’d make a fun mask doing what I do best….dots! Yes, I am the queen of dots. Someday when I am long gone, they will refer to this as my ‘dot’ period.
But I digress…I sketched out a design and went to work and viola! Winkie was born!
