Half Skull Eye


Finished this piece a few weeks ago and I've been really anxious to share it with everyone. The wood panels are beautiful once primed, excluding the particularly challenging need to soak-up and eat my paint, so it takes lots of layering and blending. Conceptually, I started fantasizing about the integration of bone, various skulls and horns... sounds strange but I wanted to experiment with the dynamics of a little darker side. She's so wickedly pretty... I love it.
Happy Friday!

Cherokee | Drawing Progress

As a woman of esteemed Cherokee ancestry, I've wanted to express and create a more spiritual atmosphere to my art for a long time. One that specifically depicts my bloodline... the strength, courage and exemplary virtues of some of the women I've been fortunate enough to know in my life.
“The Cherokees did not separate spiritual and physical realms but regarded them as one, and they practiced their religion in a host of private daily observances as well as in public ceremonies.”

New Drawing ▲The Main Light

It's always exciting to share new artwork, especially after spending hours, days and sometimes weeks mapping through imaginative ideas and all those billowing clouds of charcoal dust. Through this much-needed experiment of breaking the boundaries of my comfort zone, I'm anxious to develop as an artist... and in the same thought, I know that growth takes time. Until then, I'll keep taking small steps towards something bigger.
The Main Light, is the second drawing in a new collection I've been diligently creating. Don't forget to look back on the first piece, Silent Forest, as well as thesneak peek I shared the other day!
