I'm taking two courses this year, it's great to learn a few new techniques and give myself the push to create new things. One of them is lifebook with the amazing teacher Tamara Laporte and her guest teachers. The other is "A year of painting" with the lovely inspirational Alena Hennessy.
The first two photos are of my lifebook lesson last week. Patti Ballard inspired us to create a ballerina type figure and this was my take on it. I was inspired by the vintage photos of circus folk taken on hanging moons.
The second two photos are a painting I have been working on for a few weeks now and finally finished. She was originally inspired by Tam ' s "beacon of light" lesson although mine looks nothing like the original I was inspired by the light coming from the figure. .I decided to do a moon child, and if course she had to have an owl!
