Completing three Happy Hangers. These three will be heading over to the gallery tomorrow for the Holiday Open House on Friday. I waited until the last-minute and will be working this evening on the last touches of the other two. Hope your evening is full of creativity. I’ll enjoy finishing these pieces.
I’ve stared for a couple of days at these four canvases with backgrounds finished. A bit of creative spirit rose early today! With my coffee in hand I spent the morning in my home studio. Three years ago my Mom passed away, the last couple days I’ve not been able to stop the memories swirling in my mind. This piece reflects some of what I’ve felt and simply some of what I love in art. I’ve always enjoyed painting hearts with wings. When I began the piece I thought it was just another subject that I enjoy. After finishing the piece it felt more like my Mom earned her well deserved wings and was singing her way into heaven! It always intrigue’s me, the thought process of my art. When I do a background I never know what I will paint on the canvas, what message I want to get across…most often than not, it is best for me to just let it flow! Enjoy each day. Find your wings and soar with a song in your heart. Make your dreams come true!
This piece is one of three commissioned works I just completed and delivered. The Angel in particular is special to the buyer. It was a piece that I felt deeply about as all the elements she wanted in the piece just flowed together…it is comforting to me when the piece is so well received as the buyer became emotional when she opened it. This is one of many reasons I do art. When a buyer loves the piece it makes my world rock!!
This piece changed my thinking on perfection!! I used several different textures of paper on the background. When I began to paint the girl the papers absorbed the acrylics and watercolours, creating some imperfections. I left it overnight and returned to work it over today. After looking at it I realized I didn’t want to change it but rather felt like embracing imperfection…which is a stretch sometimes for me! I’m feeling like my inner self is finally beginning to let go of some of the restrictions I place on myself.
