"I Am Made of Stars"
9 x 12; cold pressed watercolor paper
Happy PPF . . . .
I hope this finds you well! I've had a couple of busy, arty days and am filled with joy because of it. I just came off of a long stretch absent of creativity and missed it so much. It's crazy how much our moods can be lifted when we give time to ourselves, right?!
Anyway, this week's painting was inspired by a book I was meant to read. I picked it up from one of my Mom's bookshelves a week ago, set it aside, and then (like a new word you've just learned and then keep hearing everywhere) for some reason people kept asking me if I'd read it. Seriously, like 3 people in a week - over a book from the 90's that I had never heard about until a few days ago! I took that as a major sign, and got to reading. Well, if you've ever experienced The Four Agreements (Don Miguel Ruiz), you'll understand why I read it in a matter of a few hours. It really is inspired.
And inspired I was then to create this - "I Am Made of Stars" - a 9 x 12 mixed media painting on watercolor:
Created on a gessoed surface with multiple layers of stamping and doodling
Sentiment written on neck with both matte and glitter pens
Also used: iridescent confetti stars and silver leaf
And here she is in her entirety:
Thank you for your time, thanks to Kristin & Eva for hosting PPF and have a happy, creative weekend. Perhaps with a trip to the bookstore thrown in for good luck. . . .
