Trying to catch up on my Hilton Head Gang Mugshots, and you don't think I filed them anywhere, do you? So I'm back to Week 5, which just happened to be me. And I'm going to forgive myself for the butcher jobs I did on my friends I've painted previously, as painting this face I know so well was SO hard! I got the right side better than the left, who knows why? Maybe it's because of that strange arched eyebrow. Or the ear.
Another tip: This was done in Karin Jurick's method - painted on gessobord, with black matte Rustoleum sprayed on it. BE SURE you let the rustoleum dry completely. I did not, and the paint wouldn't lay down on it, and kept getting gloppy. 3 hours on this one, and it was either say "I'm done!" or take a flying leap out the 2nd story window. I chose to be finished.... Here's my 'blurb':
Kelley “MacGrins” MacDonald is the next notorious member to be sought. You may think her smiling face is harmless...until you see your smiling mug on one of her blogs. She waltzes in to a room, a beach or an event, smiling and acting all “I’m your friend” and then shoots at will. She doesn’t leave until she has captured every available smile. When ready leave the island...Suspiciously...her little red sports car was missing...she left Hilton Head in a newly acquired Jag shouting “Girls Just Wanna Paint!” She drove up the coast stopping along the way to visit accomplices. She has hideouts everywhere. Beware the smile...
