Botanical Woman 5 or BW5

 I need time for this one: not really my usual colors, definitely a challenge but I stuck with it and got it done. I will use a brush for the last time to glaze over lightly the lower right corner. I like it well in the end but had many fights along the way as some of you know:)
I took inspiration for the face after a drawing by Boltraffio.
10" x 10" x 1.5"
acrylics, collage using my own printed papers, commercial paper, fabric, illustration from antique botanical book.

I used my papers on all 4 sides

Avant de disparaître totalement du monde, la beauté existera encore quelques instants, mais par erreur. La  beauté par erreur, c'est le dernier stade de l'histoire de la beauté. Milan     Kundera

Brrrrr ...AGAIN!

While I am fine inside my house drinking tea and working in the studio or laughing with my sister in Paris over the telephone, I am thinking of all the people who are cold because they can't afford to heat their home efficiently, those  who have to work, our homeless friends, etc... I am blessed.
Today I certainly have more than ever an attitude of gratitude.

Our Good Girls

Such beautiful and yummy fresh eggs. Even though the girls hate snow they marched bravely back into the coop to deposit their gifts today.

Winter Wonderland....Brrrr...

Keeping our little friends happy

Work Surface..... sometimes better than artwork itself? I have used this piece of heavy paper (wallpaper sample) furiously and for  a long time so I  am thinking of putting down a fresh one for BW5 but I can't throw this one away!
