Tack Down Tuesday August 23rd

You Are Enough

Materials Used:

140 lb. watercolor paper, stained tissue papers, gesso and painted papers, painted drawing paper, Image transfer with paint glazing and splatters. Applied with a heat seal iron or as I like to call it Tacked Down and sealed with a UV satin varnish.

Meaning behind the Art: 

This piece was created after my book club this yesterday morning and one of the members in the book club was wearing a bright lime green shirt and many bracelets on her left wrist…It just caught my eye. And as you can see it left an impress on me so much so, I went searching for some bright lime green papers, also the blue in this piece represent a sense of peace that seems to come over all of us as we share…we connect in a world of disconnection that is struggle to reconnect. Though the image of the woman is off to the side, which I  placed that way to say "hmmm...let me step back and take a look my life, me in it, and the directions I'm taking in relations to how it's all connected and where it's not." The black and white little squares represent us trying balances out life’s questions.
