Mixed Media Jack Russell Day 19 Of 30 Paintings In 30 Days

I know. This Jack Russell is taking over my life. Her head is just the perfect size to glue onto all of the bodies I seem to be collecting. Oh, that sounds so sinister! I think I need to name this dog. I think she will be appearing at least a few more times in my mixed media adventures. I can say, with certainty, that she will be appearing at least three more times because I have three tiny-head photos of her left. I feel a little giddy thinking about the possibilities….

These little women came from some wrapping paper my Mother-in-law wrapped one of my Christmas presents in. I am pretty sure she has had this paper for a while. I fell in love with it the moment I saw it and quietly slipped it into my paper stash when nobody was looking. Actually, that’s not true, I distinctly remember yelling, “I want to save that! I want to save that!” at my family very loudly on Christmas morning. Then I put it on my dishwasher where nobody shorter than four feet could reach it.

Anyway, I have no idea what is going on here. Some kind of holiday theatrical performance? I decided to run a caption contest on my Facebook page. If you can think of a witty, funny, thoughtful, whatever (!) caption for this painting go visit It’s A Dome Life on Facebook, like the contest post, and type your caption in the comment section. You can even like my Facebook Fan page for fun since you’ll be there anyway! The caption with the most likes will win a $5.00 Amazon gift card. Caption contest closes at 5pm Mountain Time Tuesday, January 21, 2014. I’ll just need an email address to send the gift card to you electronically which I will direct message you for – like a secret society member. Meanwhile, what should I name this Jack Russell? Gracie? Joan? Penelope? If you think of a good name for her leave me a comment here on the blog and maybe you will be the one to name her!

Have you ever had an image take over your life? What is your equivalent to my mixed media Jack Russell obsession at the moment?

  1. I fully understand your current obsession. I have only just joined following you Lillian so have not seen many but I liken it to my mixed media and watercolour pieces in my Pure Aussie Wool series where I dressed sheep faces. I thought my viewers would be getting tired of them but I am up to about number 15 now and no one has complained. If you are loving your creating then that is what matters most and you obviously are.
