my colorful life...

Here is the watercolor collage painting I have done for my painting class in progress. I  know it does not  seem like self portrait at first glance.... It had to be a representational self portrait and so since hands have a lot of meaning in my life (being an artist and nail tech for many years...) I started with words and quotes that had to do with hands and went from there...

and here is my finished piece:

I wanted to share this since it is "mixed media monday" and although this painting is approximately 16x20 it could easily be scaled down for card making or as a smaller, composition for framing. I have used a variety of papers, and techniques and even used rubber stamps!
I will share the process and all the watercolor texture techniques here on watercolor wednesday
happy creating...x's & o's
