"Something About Him"
9 1/2 x 14 Wood Serving Plate
I was really challenged with the Mixed Media Monday prompt, Moustaches this week. I considered doing a piece on Santa Clause, the Wild West and even my 4-year-old (I have a great picture of her in a fake "stache") when I stumbled upon a wonderful website (Abigail Mooney's www.TheVingageMoth.blogspot.com) which offers free images to use. This Dapper Man with his fab moustache really spoke to me, and I decided to do one more piece in honor of Halloween.
The "canvas" is a 9 1/2 x 14 wood serving plate (.50 at a local thrift store) and the interior (or groove of the plate) was primed with gesso before adding several pieces of this and that (including vintage ledgers and music scraps one of which says, "Vienna Blood Waltzes") in addition to acrylic, charcoal pencil, Luster rubons and Sepia Accents. I added more paint to the rim of the plate before adding the vintage screw, candle wax and dripping "blood".
I so appreciate you looking, to see more pieces on Moustaches, please check out www.MixedMediaMonday.wordpress.com. Oh! And Happy Halloween . . .
