BEADS, LEATHER, PORCUPINE QUILLS AND PAINT?!

Hi Everyone!
After posting this earlier this evening Gloria commented and suggested I join in for Paint Party Friday. Sooo I did. Click on the link and check out all of the very talented artists
This has been a busy day full of accomplishments. One of the things I finished is my painting. I never have been a conventional painter, my Grandmother didn't care for that very much, but she liked that I was adventurous. So here is my painting with a molded and skived leather face on acrylic painted canvas. Seed beads edging, with African porcupine quills died orange. This is a box canvas that measures 12 squared.
Have a great evening!

  1. Hi Nicole. Excellent piece. Stunning, I truly love it. The beads at the top of the mask give it your stamp. Wonderful!! Oh as for the lemon jam, I usually make some but with things the way they are lately, I just can't make any or I would send you some. Thx for stopping by my blog and I love your work! You should post it on Paint Party Friday when the link comes up later this evening.
