Been waxing my daughters face!

Hi from sunny Kent

I am so excited about my latest painting mixed media piece, it is what happens when you mix ideas from Andy Skinner together with ideas of  Dina Wakley  and add a bit of me!

A short while ago my lovely mate Julia painted a wonderful picture of her daughter, a very talented lady (Julia I mean, don't know about her daughter, but I am sure she is pretty clever too!). Do pop over to her blog and take a look at her beautiful picture,  I thought what a lovely idea to paint your daughter, so here is my lovely daughter Kara.

It is huge 50 x 62 and is full of cracks and texture

A close up of some of the texture

Poor Kara looks as though she has been shoot in the head!

And that's it,
I used Americana DecoArt paints Warm white,True red, Marigold and Deep Midnight and lots of wax!

Thanks for calling by

And just a quick look at what my naughty ducks have done to our lawn with all the rain we have had!



  1. Beautiful Kathy, a great mash up of Andy and Dina. x the texture is brilliant x

  2. Great picture Kathy. Your ducks look fab too.

  3. This is fabulous Kathy - love the great textures.
    xxx Hazel.

  4. Love it Kathy, You certainly like your texture just like me ;)... You are going to love the new Decoart Crackle products!!

  5. Kathy this is stunning - to say the least. Thanks for the mention which I had no idea about. My daughter is much cleverer than me and her pencil drawings are amazing!
    I just love the texture you've got on your canvas. Perhaps one day I'll see it in real life.
