SweetSallysSoaps gives us the topic: Show me your all time favorite piece of art and why you find it inspiring.

For a while, I had wanted to Dress Up my purse, but didn't know what I wanted to do. When Esme bleached her jeans, I decided to pop my purse in too. When it came out, I thought the pale blue and white looked like clouds in the sky. So I thought a winged bunny (my mascot) would be perfect! I opted to use acrylic paint and see how well it worked...

Once I got started painting, I decided to include all the things that are important to Who I Am. Of course there is the winged rabbit, which turned out to be a hare, flying over a cloud, which symbolizes my spirit overcoming struggles. Then there's the rainbow, universal symbol of hope; to me it also represents not just Gay Pride and Diversity, but also Creativity and Art. But it didn't feel *done* then; there was a big empty space under the rainbow that needed something.

It was about this time that I realized that Spiders were a totem of mine. Spiders embody the qualities of creativity and creation, magic and wisdom, communication and connections, intuition and inspiration. They remind us that we are weaving our own destinies and we need use our creativity to build the web of our lives. So I added a garden spider and her web, which I embroidered on, using a very fine iridescent thread, and in it I sewed a pentacle, which represents my pagan spirituality. (I had to go over it with some white paint because it was too hard to see...)

But still there was the emptiness under the rainbow. I didn't want to paint anymore; so I added a butterfly and it's path with Sharpie marker. Obviously butterflies represent change and transformation, beauty and freedom; I also added a little a more symbolism by creating it from a lemniscate, the infinity symbol, shaped into two hearts, which to me (and perhaps others) expresses infinite love: polyamory, and it's done in the colors of bi-pride: purple, pink, and blue.

Naturally, I added some sparkle to the whole thing! ^-^

Today's Art

I know I said I'd post pics from April Fool's Day, and I have a review for you all too, but today I ignored everything I thought I *should* do and painted. I bought a little 2.75" square canvas a few weeks ago for some small amount of money; I thought it would make a great trial & error piece for me to play around on before I put more money down on a bigger canvas. I've never worked with one and had no idea how I'd like it...

Anyway, a couple of years ago, I got an idea in my head for a painting and wrote it all down. Last year, I made a little sketch of it. Today, I thought I'd paint it on this little canvas.

Well, canvas doesn't work like I thought. And it doesn't do detail too well - an important factor when painting a 2.75" square. However, I am please with how she came out and am wondering what to do with her now. Do I seal the painting some how? Do I use mod podge? The acrylic spray sealer? Or should I use some thing else? What do my experienced canvas using friends out there use? Your recommendations?

Oh, I suppose you'd like to see this tiny painting, eh? Well, my bunny looks a little too cartoon-y and the bird not so joyful as I sketched. It's also hard to see the egg she's offering, and the scan is really bad. She's smiling when you see it in person, not that weird scrunchy face she's got there, but you get the idea...

As requested last night by [livejournal.com profile] moonstone_fae...

All I have left is to seal it. It doesn't show much in the pic, but the box has a rainbow kind of like the pentacle does. It's about 3" diameter. The inside is black, the rim is silver, and there is another silver ring around the bottom.

I can't help it... You guys are going to hate me... But I couldn't wait to show you all! ^_^ Look what I finished today!

She's so much better than I expected, after yesterday's drawing fiasco (when she looked like either Celine Dion or Cher) and today well she went from looking Caucasian (redraw I did) to Asian (first painting) to Greek (final)... SO MUCH PERFECT!!! Seriously, check that link in my Twitter, I wasn't aiming for that, but that's what she looks like... Don't you think?
Persephone Pomegranate Into the Underworld

Pomegranate Seeds Three

Oh! And I finished my Cornucopia and the Rubik's Cube Antonio started to make and decided not to finish...

And these pictures really do suck, the table is almond colored and the lights are all yellow... the color is all off... But I love her so much I might never send her to [livejournal.com profile] mermaiden!
