''Miss Candy Cotton'' Mixed Media Painting 19.5" x 19.5"








Miss Candy Cotton
Mixed Media Painting

Her hair looks like whimsical swirls of cotton candy(or candy floss) . I LOVE these colours so much that I want to LICK them right off but my brain quickly tells me (huh?) to lick a lolly instead instead!
Vintage card stock originals used. Vintage rose shaped embellishments. One eye (HER left) is cut from a 1960's magazine that I came accross on my travels & the other is handpainted- as is the majority of this work. I love mixing very old papers and and bits & bobs from my cluttered collection of whatnots into my paintings as I feel it adds not only dimension & interest but also character & mystery- & most importantly I enjoy it!.

Hope you like her!

Love her! She has a circus feel to her for me that I love!

It's an online publication only I'm afraid. if you go to Altered Bits (in My Favourite Places) you can view it there, or download the pdf (It's big!). Then you can print what parts you like.

I Love her.It's her eyes that get me first than her georgeous pink hair. She's a lady that know's what she wants.
I loved seeing the pictures of Dublin, thanks for sharing them.
