In The Fall of My Years

This is a birthday present I did for my girlfriend. It's the first time I've done an acutal face. I've always done my faces more impression style. After drawing out my woman, I painted the canvas with warm colors of golden yellow and some warm red. I then went on to paint the woman. I cut some leaves out of scrap paper and glued them on. The white pieces on the canvas is melted plastic bags. It adds some texture to the background. The butterflies came next and then I used beeswax to cover the picture. Next came the yarn to outline the hair and face. Lots of fun and overall time to complete was 9 hours. Hope you enjoy your birthday present Pam!!
