Well, I found a quote of Shakespeare's that I love. I found it in Michael deMeng's book, Secrets of Rusty Things. I loved it so much I had to include it in a painting. This one turned out so nice. I collaged the dress and had such a struggle with the apron! I tried so many versions in my mind. Finally I whitewashed the same paper that I had cut away. Now it looks like a sheer apron over a dress of the same pattern. I love the way it turned out. But it was hard to arrive at the right effect. The lettering is in pencil. There is gold paint on her hair, the sun, and the flowers, but you can't see it in my pictures. The edges of the board are collaged with dotted paper. I really like the way it looks. It is different than what I usually do. I usually use more muted colors, but this one is so bright and cheery.
