GOING, GOING, GONE!

50/50 #44

50/50 (44)
This background was made with crackle paste over the watercolor paper and when dry, glazed with cerulean blue and neutral tint with some Kosher salt thrown in for good measure.  I am always disappointed that I don't seem to get really exciting cracks developing but the pigment helps to bring what is there, out.  The salt acts a little visually like ages spots!  This particular tile has already been purchased!  I will hang it in the show with a red dot and the owner will probably take it home opening night.

I think this is the best one yet. Maybe tied for 1st place with stark raving mad.

Beautiful, Myrna. I like how you've let the textures themselves take the place of some of the lines. The hairline is perfection.

How great it this? You sold it before it was even in the show! ha ha I like the texture and age spots on this and there is a kindness and happiness in the face, I think.
