Rotten Apples

So, i'm off for christmas holidays and i've FINALLY had a chance to do some artwork of my own. Thought i'd kill two birds with one stone and give some art as an xmas gift to my sister. This painting is actually of her, which i painted from a photo, in acrylic paint on canvas (sorry for the blurry photo). I also included some lyrics on the painting from a song by [non other than] the Smashing Pumpkins called Rotten Apples: "Dirty your face/ With longing, and grace"
I used a modeling paste and piped the words onto the canvas and then painted over them to create a sort of embossed look. It's been ages since i've painted so it was really nice to get back to basics.....
