The Lady with Blue Eyes...New Folk Art Painting

Good Friday Evening Everyone,

Wow, it has been an absolutely beautiful day down here in rural South Georgia in my hometown of Waycross. The Sun has been shinning most of the day.....a soft, gentle breeze has been whispering through the pines.....just an all around great day.....

and what better time for me to premiere my newest, and I think my best, folk art painting. I had this idea in my head for along time....I wanted her to be a little whimsy.....slightly "hippieish"....
magical....secretive.....and special.

I used both acrylic and oil painting....I had an old frame in my craft closet....and decided to glue the frame to the mat. I really love her....and proudly have her hanging in my bedroom....hope you enjoy her:





The Lady with Blue Eyes
I had said many months ago, when I started this journey of sharing my crafts, my paintings, my jewelry that I didn't feel like I was an artist. But, my sister said to me..."sissy you are an artist".....you are a artist in your own right and way. And, after this painting, I do feel that way. Thanks for always being here for me....you followers, always accept me, no matter what I post or say. Thanks and,

Blessings,
Deborah

  8. I found your blog on the Collective and just started following on GFC. I think your painting is beautiful and you are definitely an artist. Most people could not do that. I know I couldn't!

  14. I have realized that sharing my art is part of growing as an artist even though there is a sense of vulnerability. It is always a little uncomfortable for me to share my art and even more uncomfortable to call myself an artist without feeling like I'm 'bragging'so I know how you feel but let me tell you that You are definitely an artist xo

    1. Oh, Lucy, thanks so much. I've always had a hard time taking compliments....gosh....I could talk about that all day, but, yes, this has been a way for me to express inner feelings that I probably couldn't have done before....your pics are awesome also.
