This started churning in my head. I really wanted to do one for me. One day I just opened my art journal and started playing with a background. I wasn't even planing on creating a girl for me, until it came out. And honestly I loved it. It was soothing and healing, to allow myself that freedom. To create something beautiful to represent me. Usually the entire canvas is driven by the quote. Usually I will come up with the quote for the girl first and then center the whole canvas around it. It usually is the driving force behind my canvas. With this canvas the quote didn't come until the very end. "She loved with all her heart." This canvas means so much to me and represents so much of who I am and what I love. Thanks for letting me share a piece of me with you.
This second girl I created is very simple, but also very beautiful. My family vacations in Maine a lot and I love the simplicity I feel when I'm there. I love the meadows and feeling closer to nature. This is me when I'm that girl. I've always adored the song, "American Honey" by Lady Antebellum. I love the lyrics and took a line form the song to put on this canvas. I also love how I wrote it on with my own handwriting. She is grounded, has strong values and the love of her family. And because she has those things she is free and limitless.
What art have you done to represent who you are?
