|Do you see Bill in my iPhone?|
Inspired by what I saw at the MOMA, I decided to to paint a series of faces using mixed media.
|Watercolor done in my watercolor class|
|Acrylic paints, stamps, stencils, paper scraps, and gesso|
|created with found pieces of paper, acrylic paints, General's Sketch & Wash pencil, gesso and a stick|
|Can you find all the symbols in this mixed media piece?|
|"Shadows" by M Slavin|
Just as I was collecting my faces to publish here, we watched a documentary called Faces, Places (Visages, Villages) which is a gentle, humorous movie about JR, a photographer in his 30s, and his relationship with New Wave director, Agnes Varda, an 89-year old woman with white hair fringed with a band of red. The movie follows them as they travel the French countryside, take pictures of people they encounter and plaster the enormous photos on the walls of buildings, water towers, and shipping containers. The story is at once sweet and heart-felt as it follows the path of a younger Agnes from her earlier movie-making career. The movie will restore your spirit.
