Our week three inspiration was the famous artist Mucha. Our mythical inspiration was angels. As soon as I saw Tam's piece for this week's assignment I knew it had to be a gift for my little sister. I felt the sisterly love in the piece and let that flow into my own piece as much as I could. Most people took at as a mother and child, but since I'm not a mom yet (besides my fur baby!) I felt the love I have for my little sis.
So I know you are saying, "umm angels.... Where are the wings?" She has invisible wings I say! It is mixed media using water color crayons, graphite, stamps and ink, and acrylic paint. I went with cool colors and warm feelings. The decorated background is supposed to be reminiscent of Mucha's elaborate style. The little girl is holding two feathers to represent my little sister who is now 10. When she was still in the womb she received the nickname of Two Feathers as a nod to her Native American heritage.
A close up of the faces that I'm getting to be so happy with! I'm still struggling a bit with eyes, but I can see myself getting better and better with practice.
This week's assignment is mermaids!
