the fingers painting is all finished!

seeing it completed makes me wish i had stopped sooner than i did

because the circle is looking a little wonky now.

and that bothers me since i’m a perfectionist.

so i’ll probably make some more.

add color.

we’ll see where it goes.

Compilation

next, however,

is a painting with my feet!

i’ll be starting that next week and talk about it more then.

have a great weekend and a happy easter everyone!!

fingers.

that is the next body part that i will be painting with.

if you recall, i have been doing a series of paintings with different parts of my body.

first was hair.

then eyelashes.

now fingers.

originally, i tried to come up with unusual parts to paint with, like the hair and eyelashes.

but i felt the need to use my hands.

what interests me about using my fingers is that it is so rudimentary.

we first learned to paint as children only using our hands.

anyone remember finger painting in grade school?

paint brushes were unnecessary.

i want to go back to how i first began.

this is my progress so far!

i really like it.

it does something strange to the eye.

i had to quit after doing this much because it almost hurt my eyes.

keep checking back to see the finished product!

thought i’d throw this in for fun.

me (the blonde one) and my friend painting when we were  maybe 2 and 3 years old.

where it all began 🙂
