She's a Dreamer

Hi everyone!   I hope you all enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving.   I took some time off from my studio but I was itching to get back to painting.   I found a beautiful photo on Pinterest that inspired me to create this lovely lady.

In case you haven't noticed, I love gypsies, hippies and all free spirits so they're a favorite subject for me.  I even tell my kids that I was a gypsy in a past life, lol.

The majority of the background is a thin book text wrapping paper along with scraps of patterned papers.  Then as usual, I sketched out my focal image.

She came together nicely.  I kinda wonder if I should have left her color like this.  What do you think? Do you like this better than the darker/colorful hair in the finished piece?

No gypsy would be complete without beautiful jewelry.  So next I added tons of gold trim, bangles and necklaces.

With her done, I added warm tones to the background and beautiful flowers.  I was really loving the piece at this point but I really wanted to add a sentiment.

I found the perfect quote:
She's a Dreamer, a doer, a thinker.  She sees possibility Everywhere and in Everything.

So what do you think?!  I love her and I hope you do too!!

Here is a closer look at the background and the flowers.  You can see the book text wrapping paper and beautiful zentanglish stamped flowers/flourishes behind the painted flowers.

Close up look at her ;D

This canvas is 16x12".  I'll be adding it to my Etsy shop, LittleHoneyBeeStudio tomorrow.  Thank you so much for stopping by, I hope you've enjoyed your visit!  Until next time!!
