Halo – Beyonce
This is my finished painting for the year long class I am taking with Tamara Laporte, Willowing Arts, Life Book 2014. Good thing this is a year long class and I can do the lessons at my time. I may even skip some lessons if it is something not fitting my style. I have choices and Tamara encourages us to create when he can and not to worry about being behind. She is a beautiful person full of spunk and inner/outer beauty. I am so inspired by her talent and personality, it is contagious.
I hope you like my lady who appears to be in a trance-like state, almost like she is meditating. If you look at the painting closely you will see words of inspiration written throughout her hair. Tamara encourages us to look within ourselves to create love and peace.
If you remember me stating earlier, I am a self-taught mixed media artist. I make plenty of errors. I am not ashamed of them because I learn through my errors. However, mixed media is very forgiving and there is no perfection in mixed media art. It can be quirky or very different based on what the artist feels within. This is why I love mixed media. I combine all of my painting with inspirational quotes. This is what I am about, healing, love and inspiring others to be the best they can be.
By the way, I am selling off all of my magazines in my shop at http://www.etsy.com/shop/ScrapperJudeMagazine. I decided to close up this part of my business because it is taking up too much of my time. I will be making drastic sales sometime in the near future. When my book is published I will be busy with marketing and I am involved with a new group consisting of eight authors. We are creating something special online and I am really excited about it. I will share more when we get it all together.
Have a great remainder of this weekend and hopefully I will be back on here sometime this week. Take care!
