I told you that my neighbor came over everyday this week to paint along me in my Studio (we are direct neighbors in our townhomes row, so it is very easy to come ahah).
I shared with her my techniques and insights about my creative process.
This owl is what came out from my demos to her. He is made with A LOT of layers. a lot.
We laughed at how «male-ish» he is looking. Knowing that I only do girls, it was quite a surprise ! But this painting is definately a «HE» and not a «SHE».
He is made on a 6×8″ (15x20cm) cradled wood panel. The edges are still raw.
Here are a few of the materials I’ve used for this painting:
- Scrapbooking papers
- Acrylic paints
- Alcohol inks
- Spray inks (by Lindy Stamp Gang)
- Stencils (by The Crafter’s Workshop)
- Different kinds of gel mediums, both matt and glossy. But all heavy or extra heavy
As each and every of my paintings, he has a message for you:
What are you born to be ? What is your Life Mission ?
Sometimes, you do not really need to know the answers to these questions to give the best of yourself in every situation, you do not need a precise response. Just have faith that whatever it is, you DO have a purpose, a reason you are here.
Remember that in moments of doubt and fear.
This is really about accepting that even when we don’t have the answers to our question and introspection, it is okay. That everything is taken care of. However, we have to play our part in the «big picture» of it all…
Here are some more pictures of it (click to enlarge):
