"Embrace Me With Your Love"
mixed media on 6x8 inch canvas board
Thanks for all your great comments on yesterday's post! I think it is my love of photography that pulls me right back to these altered photo pieces. So remember when I said I had another photo waiting in the wings? Well I got it on canvas quicker than I thought! This is an altered photo of my "Embrace" painting. You can see the original HERE.
I played around with the composition for a bit with this one. I knew I wanted to cut it in 3 pieces but wasn't sure what I wanted to do with them! After moving them around alot I finally found something I liked. At first the blank space to the right scared me but then I thought I could fill it with some writing which I don't typically do. I used a palette knife again to scatter some white gesso around. I am loving that white gel pen. I find it much easier to write with than a paint pen.
I really like this piece. I am feeling less pressure to step away from the black and white palette.
