Dancing Queen

My newest collage on canvas, which I actually gave to my grandmother today for her birthday. This one is done in the same manner as the last one I made, and I'm really liking the whole sketch the subject on paper and then pasting it on canvas thing better.

I actually had a really tough time with this one as opposed to the last one which was done quite by accident. I guess I was expecting the same thing to happen, and boy it sure didn't!

The collage backgrounds are mostly fabric, some decorative papers and stickers from K & C company, the crown is a generic google image, and the "queen" is drawn by me, and painted in acrylic paint. The face is colored pencil and pen, which is probably why it doesn't really show up well, but in case you are wondering, yes, it is colored!

Anyhoo, after all that hard work, I'm actually gonna miss her. I sure hope she likes her new home!

I wonder if all artists feel this way after giving away their artwork?
