Life is all about achieving balance


Over at the milliande community the art journal prompt is "I am..."..well I have lots of roles in life and it takes me all my time to balance them so this is what this page is about. Over at the Wednesday Stamper the challenge is to use a letter...so I have used the letter W as I was thinking about the International Womens Day and all the roles women have these days in the home and at work.


Blue Nude II by Henri Matisse

I was looking at the the work of Henri Matisse and like the way he used the outline of a woman in his series of paper cutout paintings so I have used some of my painted papers to cut out a figure who is balancing a bird and an egg..I like to use eggs as they remind me of another fav artist Dali. The little bird stamp is one of my scrollswork favourites

I have changed my blog background..isnt this just lovely for spring..click on the top left hand corner to see more free backgrounds

Great page, I love the imagery and the symbolism behind it. It strikes me you'd love the work of artist Kate Lowe; quite colourful and textured. You should check her out for interest.
