A Mixed Media Portrait

"Mom and Her Favorite Chair"
Mixed Media on Masonite, 16 x 20," c. Catherine Vines
This painting is done with acrylics over a collage of letters and envelopes from my mother to me. She loved this Victorian chair and would sit there and work on her quilts.
I can see now that the chair is too important and distracts from the face, but it has taken some time to get that perspective.
Quite a difference from the flesh tones I have been working on the last few days! 
Over the next few days I will be posting some older paintings while I am visit my aunt in WV. She is Mother's baby sister, the last of her siblings, and very dear.
