on this All Hallows Eve...let me introduce, Hegitha

do you recall the witch prototype I shared with you?
witch one you ask??

why this one of course....

  My friend Jen came and picked up Hegitha,and was she ever excited and surprised! 
Jen had seen the above painting ahead of time,so she probably was thinking something similar.
But you know how we roll as mixed media artists, sometimes(ok,most times)after layer upon layer,the real beauty comes out!
 Here are a few pics of along the way,not many as I was lost in the process of altering the canvas! Bwwaaaahaahaahaaa

Adding vintage sheet music for texture and I had to add the same to the back of  the canvas because it was so very fragile.
hey,what do you want for a 100 year old portrait


adding gauzy texture to Hegitha's hat as well as a bit of color and some stars that glow

at this point, hmmmmm,Mr.Neal says she's just not scary enough...

 I am digging the nose !!
 ROTFL~OMG! I crackle myself up!! heehee



lots of yummy color...better to cackle on my dear (oops crackle!) 

Okay,time for a redo...
new coloring
a couple of warts
oh, let's not forget those hairs on the warts...

 these eyes
  a new do before her hat goes on

a bit of detail to her frock 
and a glowing pentagram

and we have Hegitha,in all of her glorious color!!

I hope I have not scared you with my Hegitha canvas and maybe you could leave a message letting me know what you think! 
As always,I love that you take the time to visit with me! 
If you celebrate this day,or however you celebrate All Hallows Eve,I do hope it's a pleasant one!
