I painted this figure for an event (a reading from the new children's novel, "The Chocolate Hideaway") we're having at the library tomorrow night. I put it beside the door so I'd remember to take her to work today. When I got up a few minutes ago to take my dog out, it scared the CRAP out of me!!! I thought someone was standing by the door!!!
Kelly and I cut her out of pink foam board that we bought from Home Depot, painted it with black gesso. I thought I wanted just a black profile of a figure, but later decided I wanted to add a little color. I'm glad we did because now you can tell she is holding a lantern.
