My Painting #10 - Leslie Saeta's 30 Paintings in 30 Days - January 2014 Challenge

Today marks Day 10, Week Two - Day Three of Leslie Saeta's painting challenge.

In keeping with this week's theme of me studying various paintings by Picasso, for today I chose his painting entitled: 

Jacqueline aux Fleurs.  Vallauris,  1954.  Oil on canvas, 39 3/8" x 31 7/8"

His paintings of Jacqueline are on the top of the list of my favorites.  I just love how he painted her. 

For my study and interpretation of this painting, I decided to make it 3D by using smaller canvases for the eyes, nose and mouth.  I call this sort of design a  FACEt.  Because a facet is defined as:  "one of the small,  polished plane surfaces of a cut gem.  And my FACEt artwork fits this discription for the face.

I like how these paintings are quite different from anything you see out there.  I love being different. 

Thanks for stopping by.  Hope you enjoyed today's Picasso interpretation. 

Happy Painting!  Cheers!  and Break a Bristle.
