Harvest Queen in Progress

Lately I've been working on this canvas board collage creating the Harvest Queen for a new workshop to be on line this fall at Joggles.
The Queen is a handmade "paperdoll" placed over the textured and colored background with 3-D hair and embellishmnets added. She still has a long way to go. She'll be holding a golden challice trimmed in copper, still needs her "make-up" including eyelashes, lipstick and nail polish as well as majestic eye shadow, and a few mini swarovski crystals on her tattoo. I expect I'll add more bits and bobs to her hair as I go as well because she just keeps commanding me to give her more. Courteously, as she is a kindly Queen, but she is still royalty after all. Who am I to argue?

I also think the harvest moon need a touch more red/orange and maybe a cloud or two drifting by...


  1. Brilliant idea Judy. I will look forward to seeing her completed. Might I suggest that you try creating a relief style sculpt on the board too as another fun way to explore sculptural mixed media. I have been doing that for a few years and it is so much fun.

  2. Hi, Judy!

    Really love this piece. I can imagine all the finishing touches. She's going to be so magical! Thanks for your compliments on my work. Coming from you, it means a lot. :o)

  3. Judy, this is looking so beautiful. I thought it looked good before but you were just getting started.
