It was so lovely to pick up a paint brush and do some art after a few weeks of not doing anything! When I was pondering the challenge of "stars" for Mixed Media Monday, I began thinking of the golden oldies in movies, and the real "stars". My daughter and I love movies from the 30's and 40's, and one of our favourite actresses is Bette Davis, so it was an easy choice for me. The quote I used is from one of our favourite Bette movies - Now Voyager - "why ask for the moon when we have the stars".
The painting is on a canvas approx. 30 x 40 cm or 12 x 16 inches and I used computer generated images, acrylic paint, modelling paste, cheese cloth, charcoal and oil pastels.
