Mixed Media Monday - Moon/Lunar

It's a little scary uploading the first face I've ever painted to my blog, but since it's something I'd like to do in 2009, I have to start somewhere. I took the opportunity and added the moon and stars in the background so that it would sit with the theme of moon/lunar on Mixed Media Monday this week (I'm so over committed at the moment, I need to kill as many birds with one stone as possible). The piece is done on a canvas board 5 x 7 inches (12.7 x 17.8 cm) is done mainly in acrylics, with a little pencil, wax crayon and charcoal thrown in.

Diane, I think your first painted face is lovely. The nose is very good. (Mine always look off.) Congrats!

I can't believe this is your first face painting (at least for the blog challenge). It is quite stunning. Everything about it is perfection. The colours are wonderful. Fantastic job.
