Shopping Girl - 1st of the Series!

Slowly but surely, I'm working on new mixed media art pieces! This is my newest piece called 'Shopping Girl'. I'm going to work on a series of girls, and thhis is the first!

I started with a blank canvas, painted it, collaged on different pages from vintage books, collaged on a solid color paper, then collaged a sheet of vintage sheet music on top of all that. When that was dry, I painted the girl, collaging on her dress and her Bloomies' Big Brown Bag! I finished it up with some washes of paint and sealed it with a layer of matte medium.

Hopefully you enjoy it, and she puts a smile on your face today!
