Challenge Day 21, Acrylics and Fancy Hats

People! It’s day 21 of the 30-day painting challenge. I’m already trying to decide what I’m going to do in February. I know there is a 29 Faces challenge, but I don’t think I want to continue to post every day. I am undecided!

Sally Did Not Enjoy Her Hat
6″ x 6″ Acrylics and ink on gessobord

The nannies, all required to dress in costumes provided by their employers and attend the party to help with the children, did not appear to be enjoying themselves.

Alternate Titles: Sisterhood of the Missing Chins, Best Friends, The Fates (or The Furies – because that would be silly and ridiculous. Possibly hilarious). I had to abandon the background for time, once again, with a rather poor and uneven covering of purple.

The gessobord was suggested at Dick Blick’s as a very smooth surface to paint on. I don’t like it so far! (Erasing on it is messy, for one thing.) I think I might even like canvas texture. Further investigations are needed. Thanks for visiting!

    I am so in love with the chinlessness of these poor nannies! And much as I love the headdress on the right, I think I most want the one in the middle. It is beyond fabulous!

    On the texture front, I am definitely with you. I don’t want anything to slickery!
