Sculpture and Faux Finishes 2

It is a ridiculous color.

But it's the right ridiculous color, and the perfect situation to ask a nine year old help me paint.
"Don't worry, Lulu, you can't make a mistake."
She had fun- she got more paint on the panel than on herself. A success.

 Both panels with patina base.
I'm glazing that blue way back into the background.
This begins the maddening swings back and forth from too garish to too subtle.

Sounds like my life. ;-)

So true, Sherrie. But remember, it takes courage to be subtle or garish.
As artists, we're challenged to know both, and choose wisely.
