This is another canvas I painted (and drew on with pen) as part of last week's creative exercise in the Divine Romance class. The hardest part of this was not trying to make it "perfect". I used pictures as models but didn't try to make it "real". I added paint and tissue/mulberry paper as texture. I added some shells and a pearl treasure to the canvas. Do I like it? Hard to say - it's not really pretty - but it's interesting. What's important to me about my art? That's really the question here. Again - I come back to having a desire to create and the desire to have fun while doing so. So - I guess this mixed media piece (while I call - appropriately enough - Under The Sea) is indeed a success since it fulfilled both those desires. This artful journey seems to be less about "talent" and more about traveling the path itself. My techniques are messy - I use my hands more often than not as brushes. Putting my work out here is to deny my fears and 'fess up to all of you out there that I am indeed an artist. Thanks for stopping by to take a look. I love comments - so please leave one if you can.
