>Fais Do-Do

8 Apr


Fais Do-Do is a Cajun lullaby. The phrase translates as “Go to sleep.”  Can you guess why I am so tired lately?  This is done on a wooden bookshelf divider with spray paint, acrylic, screen printed canvas (the skulls), tiny Voodoo dolls made of string and wire, and dismantled dental gauze – and  LOT of glue.  Click images for larger view.  The detail shots are a little blurry but you get the idea.

Submitted to Paint Party Friday.

    >This painting is so fascinating… so much to see and get lost in – I love the textures!Your "and so it begins" post had me laughing out loud (the tin man comment definitely conjured up some images! ha!) I also really like the phrase: "I stepped in a pile of artists block" – I have never heard it put any better!It's fun to see your process…

    >This is fantastic – I love all the mixed media art I'm discovering on PPF. I had to look closely for the skulls as I didn't notice them immediately and I really like that sort of painting where the longer you look at it the more you discover.

    >The color palette and use of material makes the piece sings with emotion and depth. Very cool work!Love the way you use skulls and voodoo dolls – some of my favorites. 😉

    >Nice work! I like the ghostly images that seem to appear and disappear…makes the observer ask if they really did see a voodoo doll, which plays with the emotions and questions reality….very mysterious!
