Finished Painting!

Lady Zen is now complete. She is not perfect, but then, neither am I! I used gold leafing for her collar and shaded it to show the texture. I added shadows to her costume, and dimensional crystals to her neckwear. I finally got the angle right so the metallic paints didn't confuse the camera lense and wash out or alter the color, alas you can't see the sparkle and shimmer as well. Refer back to the last sample of this work in progress and imagine merging the two backgrounds and you'll know what she really looks like. I'm working on mastering mixed media paintings not photography. For now, anyway. LOL!

Anywho, she was a blast to create and I will be offering her, or a sample very similar to her, as an on line workshop on Joggles, hopefully this fall.


  1. en turned out very nice. The piece is so full of color and texture. Way to go! Wow! A class? You are fearless my friend and I wish you much luck on that. I haven't done anything else with my healing doll art class since before my surgery.

  2. Thanks so much Cody! Glad to see you up and around on the internet! Let me know when you want to do lunch.

  3. She's beautiful! Her garden is so intricate. I know how much flowers inspire you.

  4. Thanks! Yes! it's like being in my garden.
