"you. are. beauty."
8 x 8 chunky canvas
I'm on my way out of town for a little weekend with family and friends, but I wanted to share this 8 x 8 gallery-wrapped canvas with you before I scoot out . . . .
As you can see, I'm on a Life Book kick and wanted to try my luck at a brunette version of this journal page that I recently completed on the course. I put her on a chunky canvas (which, btw, is ever-so tricky compared to the watercolor paper ;) and painted the words, "you. are. beauty." to the right.
This is a gift for my girlfriend who really is stunning, both inside and out. She has an impressive career - globe trotting around the world in the beauty industry - which is how we met over 15 years ago. She's behind the scenes doing makeup for runway shows and at high-end events and weddings rubbing elbows with the rich and famous. And once in a while, she takes me (a former makeup artist myself) along for the ride. This is dedicated to her, my purty, purty friend and host for the evening.
