What a slow day at the gallery today! It's Mother's day, for one. People just aren't out browsing open art studios. So I took advantage of the time and painted another Wallflower for my series. My goal is to have eight, so I'm halfway there! Obviously I didn't make the May deadline I imposed on myself, so now I'm shooting for June sometime. I was browsing in my latest issue of Somerset Studios Magazine and was inspired by one of the illos in it. It was done by using gel medium and doing transfers, etc. I don't know how to do any of that, soI just painted mine and hoped for the best. No gel medium or anything else except for this awesome piece of paper that came in the magazine and had the word "Flower" all over it. What a sign! I stamped over some of the letters in paint and incorporated them into the design.
So, here she is. Again, I'd like to know from you what you think her story is! This one was a lot of fun to do, keeping it all in blues and greens with just her lips and bracelet in persimmon. The flowers on the edges are shapes cut from magazines, just the colors I needed. Thanks for your feedback. You're all the best!! And Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there :)
