Gloria J Zucaro's "Doings"

For Halloween this year I had a family dinner party and everyone came in costume and got Trick or Treat bags.  I am the skeleton, my daughter-in-law Amy is Sponge Bob, my grandson Enzo is Stinkbomb from Skylanders, my daughter Lucy is Queen of the Pokemon , and Risa , Amy's mother, is a little devil!

Lucy then took a picture of our group so that my son Louie could get in.  He was a creepy alien!

Portrait Class with Linda Vice; our first time putting all the parts of the face together into an actual portrait.




I joined Carolyn Dube's free workshop called "Permission to Play" last night.  The first thing we were to do was print out our permission slip and then cover it with a sealer and paint it.  I decided I wanted mine to look like an official document. I used Elmer's Glue all to seal the printing, then layers of several colors from CreateaColor Aqua Briques in their dry form. Afterward I brushed them with water.  It wasn't dark enough so I wet the brique that was a burnt sienna color and added more around the edges.  I filled in my name and signature with colored markers.   







I am linking this to Paint Party Friday as well as to my Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest sites.  I have also been doing some digital abstract work that you can see on my Society6 site.
Have a wonderful week.
