Our Princesses


A couple of years ago while we celebrated my Mothers birthday at the local Veterans Hall, I snapped a photo of three of our princesses and I decided this year to paint my version of that photo.

The sketch was drawn on the canvas where it sat for maybe 6 months or more.  My RA flaring and a bout of flu (despite having the shot) stopped me from much.  Once I felt better I was not sure which art medium direction  I wanted to use on this piece. Finally, Ideciding and beginning with water color pencils. 

Once coloring with the pencils & water was completed, the result wasn’t satisfying to me, so out came the blendable water based ink pens.  Wella! I LOVED the ink atop the color pencils, it blended so very nicely.  Somewhere along the line I made the decision to change the look of the flag instead of  literal but more whimsical and addedstitching, I know the stitching idea came from my quilting friends & family.

Next the medium for the flag acrylics, I decided to go with a visual of hopes and dreams….floating & swirling for our Princesses.  I am not finished this piece.  It still needs a touch or two more but I don’t know what yet.  So until I do it will be placed prominently in my studio until that, “Wella!” Moment occurs.👩🏽‍🎨🎨😉
