I just love Kelly Rae Roberts. Her lovely paintings portraying simplified portraits of girls are dreamy and inspiring. I love how she has little messages on some of them, some soulful and some inspiring. One day I just took an old canvas that I did not like how it was going and just started to collage some papers on it, which led to a simple sketch of a girl.
Funny thing is, I got to a certain point and blah.. I hated her face. I left her hanging on my wall here in my studio. I looked at her every so often, not ready to give up as there was things I loved about her. I was puttering around working on other things and I grabbed her. Bing Bang Boom... it all started to come together. I love when that happens. I know now that I can't make it happen, I just have to wait for it.
I am actually going to be teaching a collage class here in our community in the fall. I am getting the class prepared to advertise for it locally. Details will follow. It is going to be fun and I can't wait for it.
Just a little note, don't forget you still have a few days left to get in on my painting give away so make sure you get your name in there!
Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend. I am going to spend the evening crafting with my peeps. Can't wait!
