Acrylic on 6×12 stretched canvas (part #2) (6/7/09)
This is completely different from my other works. (The colors are still there though!) I’ve been working on about 3 large projects here and there, but it’s been ages since I’ve completed anything new! I was stuck house sitting with no computer this weekend, so I thought I’d bing my paints along and be productive. I was flipping through my sketchbook and found a really old half finished portrait. The girl was just dying to be painted! So, I sketched her on a canvas. In the original sketch, I had given her brown hair with some hi-lites and blue eyes. After laying down the background and painting her skin, she was just begging for these green cat eyes and funky purple hair. Everything fell into place after that. The bubbles just seemed to fit her so well! Once I finished her, I got the image of a hummingbird/peacock type creature, so – the tryptich was born! :) She’s got the bird and some butterflies to keep her company. Since this piece seemed to be so focused around the element of air, I decided to call it ‘Air Head’. Don’t be fooled though, she’s not as dumb as she looks! :)
This gave me an idea for a ‘modern elemental’ series. Is this something you’d like to see? She’s air, I would do ‘Bubble Brains’ for water, ‘Hot Head’ for Fire, but I’m not sure what to call Earth…..any suggestions?
