Baby in a Red Cape

Little Red Baby-Hood

Continuing with the winter theme, I created this “Little Red Baby-Hood in the Woods” a couple of months ago. Painted with acrylics with some fabric glued on. The baby is me. Cute. Still can’t paint people, so old photographs are a great stand-in. And they fit so well with the whole mixed media thing.

And this one is completely complete… there’s a bird on it. Doesn’t having a bird in your creations totally elevate them to Art? Anyway, I did a similar painting (as yet unrevealed) that I like better, but this one is more wintery. And the other one is also as yet unscanned, which I think makes them look better on the computer than taking a picture.
