The Muse

I was going to title it the muse is not amused. But it's more like the artist is not amused. I have been struggling with this little 5x7 canvas for the past two weeks. It was too light, too dark, too much, too little blah, blah. It's just a little experiment with molding paste, again, and some of my acrylic paints that needed some use. The dark around the edges is a Micaceous Iron Oxide, a sample from Golden. It has a sparkly effect which I think is quite nice. I'm not sure it shows up that much in the picture. I was into the copper again, too; the powder and the paint. I love the combination with the cobalt turquoise. I think I'm finished, but you never know. I'll post her and put her away for awhile. Perhaps she's not a muse at all but really a Christmas angel in disguise.


  1. She can be anything you want her to be... and I think it looks great.. love those colors and her flowing hair.. I so admire artists that go out on the limb to try new things. I haven't been blogging much the last few weeks, so didn't know about your surgery, hope your healing well.

  2. Thanks, BJ, I am getting better everyday.
