Soar - Mixed Media Canvas

Happy Friday Everyone!!  I didn't think I was gonna be able to share my latest canvas with you today because it's been raining so much.  Luckily there was a break in the rain and the sun peeked out just a little bit so I ran out to get some pics.  This is an 11x14 canvas that I finished up this morning:

No words on this one so you can form your own interpretation of what she might be saying, thinking or doing.  I thought about adding a sentiment but in the end I decided she was beautiful all on her own.

I wanted to take a break from all the Dia De Los Muertos skullz so I pulled out a canvas and just started adding all the scraps of papers that were beginning to accumulate on my desk from recent projects.  So at this point, I had no plan at all, lol.

Then I decided that I wanted to practice painting my ladies using the canvas vertically and this beauty began to emerge.

I was also working on a custom order using a Prima stencil and tinted molding paste.  So in the spirit of not wasting supplies, the left overs went on this piece.

I gave her bold red lipstick and a red blouse because to me, she is a beautiful strong women.  She has wings to soar above all the drama around her.  She's smiling because she's confident and knows her own strength.  Her backdrop is blue and green because she is at peace with herself and her life, she's happy.  Okay so that's what I see in her.  I'd love to hear what you see.  What's your interpretation?

Thank you so much for stopping by my little slice of blogland!  Have a Wonderful weekend!!

Hugs to you all :D

    How do you color her eyes, the brown part, with the lighter color around the black pupil and then darker on the outside of the eye. It makes the eyes look like glass to me and I love it. It doesn't look like just a circle of lighter color and I wonder how you do that. Thanks.
