Another Gypsy Woman.


I found this image on the internet- god only knows from where. This woman has been in 3 of my pieces so far. Whenever I use her, I picture a thousand images in my head.... sounds like I need to do a series! I envision different colors in the background, maybe with a single word to convey my point. The possibilities are endless.


The most recent piece was for my friend Catherine. Of course, I forgot to take a picture of it before I mailed it to her. But she kindly scanned it for me, so at least there's some record of it!!

I love the colors. The background is done in layers of paint and paper, nicely texturized with a heat gun. The brass circles are from a bunch I bought on eBay. (Some of you out there know how much I love metal bits!! I need to get them listed on etsy and Lollishops).

What image do you love? Is there a face that inspires you? Show me!


hugs- Lee

Very cool.....such a rough and rugged type of vintage. You are so creative to creat something from this.
