The Goddess Makes Her Debut
After weeks of working on this painting in Flora Bowley's class, The Goddess has emerged. I had so much fun using Flora's painting techniques, and I have to admit that I'm pretty amazed at how she turned out. I've never done a painting quite like this before. She's very bright, very bold, and really makes a statement. What was really cool was that she actually emerged from the painting. Flora taught us background techniques but urged us to make the end product our own. I painted for 4 weeks without having any idea of where this was going, but on the fifth week The Goddess called to me from the colorfully chaotic background. I had no choice but to bring her out. Pretty cool stuff. She now holds a place of honor in my living room.
