Indie Collaborative Piece by the Swell Sisters

I went to a SS meeting last night and brought home another collaborative project. I wasn't planning on taking another but several women insisted I take it. Everyone has been calling it the "Rasta Girl". The Rasta Girl actually started out as a "Bongo Guy"! I worked on it most of the day. I stared at her for a few hours last night and had an idea of what I would do today. The canvas is huge. 30 x 40. I'm not much taller than that! I have only done one painting that large. This is my last "Indie" until next year. It's been a lot of fun doing these projects. I've promised some pictures of a collaborative piece so here goes! I will share the whole progression with you, first to last. The last picture with the greenery is what I added to the piece. I may add a couple Bird of Paradise flowers to it but I'm not sure if someone else is going to work on her after me, if not then I may add it. You can click on a picture for a larger view. Honestly, it was so tempting to turn her into an Angel *hehe* Now I want to do an Angel on a super large canvas just for fun!
