Here is a peek at one of the Larmes de Plumes paintings that will be showing up in my ARTshop this week. Maybe even today. 'Larmes de Plumes' translates to Tears of Feathers... and if you get a person with a real French accent to say it - you will see just how beautiful the name sounds (although it looks quite awkward).
This series, for me, is a quiet and cathartic collection. There is no fanfare. This type of painting is a combination of watercolour techniques with acrylic paint on nearly raw canvas. It gets done in one shot and when then 'tears' are dry - the painting is finished. It involves a lot of faith and trust... something that I have learned is the key to everything there is in life.
As 2012 sets - I'm completely bewildered by the turn around. The first half of the year was the worst of any I have experienced in my entire life. I don't have better words to describe the pain or the lowness. It was pretty much just a soup of sadness. That metamorphasized into something beautiful. One hundred and eighty degrees of different.
These plumes are the collection of tears... sadness, joy and otherwise.
Today: I'm working hard in my ARTshop to create some Black Friday magic. I will have a final post on the Masquerade art show... it's one of thos things that I need to simmer on. So much came together to make the show a success... I want to do it right.
