I am wrapping up my painting year 2015 with a portrait painting. This is the second painting that I completed on the 12 x 12 x 1 inch wood panels. It is modeled after my soon to be 14 year old daughter. I collaged newspaper and painted paper to the panel and then began painting the face in acrylic. As the painting developed most of the initial collage was covered. I left a little newsprint showing through here & there. One area I noticed this was on the mouth. As I was working on the mouth I noticed the text on the lower lip. I wondered what the text said and upon closer inspection discovered the words"largest component". This made me laugh because these words could not have shown up on a more appropriate spot!
I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and wishing you a wonderful New Year ahead!
