This week, I have been really busy with translations and a commission for 20 children flower head wreaths. Especially, the last one is a job, that gave me loads of stress at the beginning, but, as soon, as I figured out, what I can do in the short time with the materials I could get, it became pretty boring. The good thing with that is, that prepping and gluing down hundreds of similar flowers I can catch up on the videos I wanted to watch for some time already :)
So Tamara Laporte's 3 hours long video art class on honoring our past inspired me to start this piece I consider finished today and am really happy with the result, especially with the textural yumminess on the hair and the background (used even a home made paste to create it) :)
Tamara suggested to find some words to honor my past and to add them to the background. My words would be: I HONOR MY PAST FOR IT REVEALED WHO I AM, but I don't like adding words to my paintings, so I let some gold color patina symbolize my appreciation for everything I have experienced so far during this life time.
As Thursday is the day of Creative Spaces jump over to this site and be ready for an inspirational blast!
