First Kiss for the Frog Prince

First Kiss for the Frog Prince

Material:  mixed media (acrylic paint, coloured pencils, collage) on 6 x 6 wrapped canvas.
Status:  Gone to a happy home.

Notes:  I have long had the princess and frog painting in my head, and I have always loved when other painters used bits of print in their work.  I am so pleased with this concept - I can't wait to do it again! 

My very good friend, Kat, said I might want to add some other skin-tones to my paintings...and so I did.  I love the mocha-latte coloured skin with the bubblegum cheeks. 

For the text, I opened a book about Emily Dickinson, and came to a poem with a prince in it....I had to do it...I cut into my book, with no regrets!
