It is done. Totally changed her hair and made her look almost like a mom from the fifties or sixties. But really she represents all those who have suffered the pain, and anguish of breast cancer with quiet dignity. To all of you...you are angels here on earth and I truly hope that all of your real friends are there for you...now and always. Michelle...the title is Getting By. I am a huge Beatles fan and hence the lyrics. Actually...I have not heard this song in ages and then about 3 weeks ago, it was on the radio. That was the inspiration for this work. The nuts and bolts of the work include acrylics, neocolors II, found papers, confetti, and oil pastels on an 8 by 10 inch canvas board.
Next up, I have to reprint the labels/ tags for my gallery show, want to start masonite board abstract, develop the first few exercises for my art journal class, develop a class called collage crate, and develop a class for earth day of next year (more to come later and will give proper credit again for the idea).
