100 PORTRAITS IN 100 DAYS - Angela, 34/100, © Carol Nelson Fine Art


Day 34

Angela has this stunning silver hair that I couldn't resist making blue. The last person I painted with blue hair was a brunette (Regula, 21/100) and she loved the blue. A blue rinse would do the trick for Angela. LOL Angela is a fine artist herself - see her blog at angelaelledge.blogspot.com.

Today I had to go to Home Depot to get more MDF board for making these 6x6 panels. I have HD cut a 24x48 board into 6 inch strips. These I can cut into 6x6 panels using my radial arm saw. Then I sand them and gesso them. I've got 26 more ready to go. That should take me about to the half way mark.

Hello Carol,
I teach at a private school in the inner city and my students would so totally think I was cool if I walked in one day with blue hair. I love my portrait and I love my blue hair; your series is amazing and I'm so happy you included me in it!

It has brought out the Dusty Springfield in her!
