Spirit Soul & Sweetness - 3 Kids, Content Mother Art Print
Message from the Artist: All of my life, I have been writing, and collecting my writings, poems, stories and blurbs, painting titles, phrases and tag lines. I have been wanting, for a couple years now, to find a way to incorporate the words into my mother and child paintings ~ to give a glimmer of my thoughts behind the work ~ a glimmer brighter than the title can provide. Some text that can be painted into the artwork, to be present when the painting's artist statement was not around.
With Spirit, Soul & Sweetness, I really felt a need to include words. I was able to clip words directly from my journal, write in my own handwriting with my trusty drawing pen ~ and adhere the text, scumbling paint around and layering transparent tones ~ welcoming that little slip of text right into the world of the image, making it feel necessary, making it appear natural. I have done this just once now, but I can already tell that a new door has opened to me, and conquering this fear will lead to additional fears to be conquered. How fun. This mother with three wide-eyed innocent children... 3 kids that embody the title: Spirit, Soul and Sweetness.
