Newest painting - two hand prints!

 Someone I met at the Athens ARTSfest visited with her two children so that I could get impressions of their hands on the same painting. The kids picked out the things I added to the painting. Intense blues and reds were decided on for the main colors. We decided to make the plaster layer thicker than on my usual pieces - in hopes that it would emphasize the "reality" of the hands that made the prints.
 I think a grandmother is going to get the painting for Christmas!

Nice of those kids to lend you a hand!

How fun! Your pieces seem so smooth and detailed! What joint compound do you use? I've found that some are too squishy and don't take texture well. Anyway, as always, you are an inspiration. Have a great new year!
