"Ophelia" 9 x 12 Pressed Cardboard
"Snow and frost and icy noons,
Crumpled roses, torn and bleeding;
Ophelia waiting at the gate,
What more would any man be needing?"
-Excerpt from the poem, Lady Bountiful by Dolores M. French
She's finished! The little lady I was working on Last week that is - and she even has her own "wings" to show for it. I tried my hand at an all-white palette this time, hoping to see how far I could get with a lack of color altogether. I know that a successful interior design using mostly whites rely on textures and depth to create interest, so I went about seeing how much texture I could add to the mix. Turns out, a lotta molding paste and added pieces did the trick. Wanna see what I did with her? Okay then, here goes:
Full piece with "wings" that extend off of the bottom.
Her hair and "hat" were created with molding paste pushed through stencils and mesh fruit bags that were first painted white before being adhered with E-6000.
The piece of vintage text that inspired the Title.
(A better look at her wings ;)
And there you have it! Sweet Little Ophelia, all dressed in white. . .
Speaking of the opposite of white, The SOC 5 is just Four. Tiny. Weeks. From. Today! Are you ready?!
Wheeeeeeeeee . . .
To Love, Art & Getting Ready,
