Witchy Woman

 Working on a commission for a friend, I created Witchy Woman as my prototype.

 This is the original canvas witch,oops-which,I started with. 
 Jennifer,a long time family friend,is an avid collector,auction hunter and seller of fine antiques and vintage treasures,specializing in vintage clothing.
You find find Jen,aka,LadyJane Vintage here~
Etsy  and    Ebay   and   Instagram

 When this canvas at auction was not going to be bid on,Jen bid $1.00 and bought it with me in mind.
 Yea,no I don't look like her and not even am I a witch-heeheeeeheeee
Jen had a special witch in mind and knew she wanted me to take on the challenge! 
Witch,I have and now Witchy is complete,but I cannot post her until Jen picks her up- so stay tuned for that post! 
(sorry,can't seem to help myself  with the witch puns!)
 Some lovely cackle(oops-crackle) detail
 don't know about her face,she reminds me of the witch on Scooby Do! haahaa

As I said, stay tuned for the finished canvas,witch,does not look at all like my prototype!

 Happy Weekend~I hope it's ghoulishly fun!
(last pun, I promise! heheeee)

Brilliant work Jackie, wow, love the expression on her face!!

Apologies for my long absence, for some reason my google blog reader never showed your posts anymore, then finally I managed to get to your blog via google plus and then found I was not following you anymore..... weird, anyway, it's now remedied, so expect to see me more often again!
