Mixed Media Monday - Friendship

Over on Mixed Media Monday I chose the theme of friendship for this week's challenge. I decided to give faces another try, and I also wanted to try painting over the top of my painted and layered backgrounds. This is the result. I'm looking forward to the time (if ever) when the faces become more second nature to me - the backgrounds are starting to become that way.

I don't know why you are worrying about your faces. To me they are perfect. Your painting is fantastic - everything about it. Applause from my corner - and thanks for the current challenge.

I agree -- your faces are wonderful -- as is the sentiment of the quote. I love your friends and the background upon which they rest.

Love the "whimsy" look to this piece. Thanks for another great theme.

Diane, I love your style of painting. Each painter has a unique style or it would be very boring. Your faces are great. I'm just wondering what you used to paint over the background so effectively.

You are so clever Diane! What a beautiful painting... it's absolutely perfect for the theme and I wouldn't worry if I were you - your faces are great.
Anyway, if you like them, that's the most important thing. Someone once told me 'perfection' is overrated! (It works for me!!);o)
