Today’s art is an experiment.
I was watching a documentary called The Cave Of Forgotten Dreams…and it triggered some memories in me from when I was very young. My intention then (and now) is to study all I can to find when Mankind created religion. Some of the images shown in this movie opened up some doors that I hadn’t really closed…I just hadn’t walked through to see what remained in those rooms for too many years.
And so…coupling that trigger with some adventuring with oil pastels and under-paper…this became the result:
In real life, it is a tiny piece (for me)…She is 4 1/2 inches by 4 1/2 inches on MDF board. And I found a way to seal Her so that the oil pastel doesn’t smear. Which is a big deal for me, because i have discovered I love working with oil pastels, but the whole not able to seal them drives me crazy.
I keep looking at the piece in my hand and the picture on the screen–the scan…and I am not really impressed with my scanner today.
If and when I go to sell this piece, I will be taking pictures with our camera, versus using the scanner. But for right now, the scan suffices.
I actually love how She turned out. I didn’t have any expectations of all when I did this, I was playing. And she turned out beautifully.
