I know she doesn't look very happy but the reason for my moment of happiness can be seen on top of her head.
|Acrylic and a touch of oil pastel|
Perched on her head is a robin. There is a little story of my late Mum and a robin which is dear to me and when I see a robin I feel closer to her and that is my 'moment of happiness.'
The reason for the different texture you can see in her face is because I began by adhering book and patterned papers to the canvas. This is the first time I have painted on a canvas board, paper being my usual choice. This image is a good illustration of the difference in the final overall appearance but I'm still not sure which I prefer, however, I am happy with the result of this piece.
