This piece seems like it took FOREVER to finish. I started it, painted over it, started again... layered upon layered upon layered... face shaded and gesso'd and painted and highlighted and... well, you get the idea. This is approximately a 9x11 wood piece.
I wasn't sure what she was saying to me. And then, during a walk around the track, listening to my iPod... I heard the words in my ear. live a life uncommon.
I added touches of pink, with her lips, the butterfly... the shading around the words... and her hair is a glimmery sea of hot pink perfect pearl powder... which you can only see in the right light.
My heart tells me this belongs to a young girl - because my greatest piece of advice that I could give someone is to live a life uncommon... and if you believe that from a young age, then your future is limitless.
You can find her in Etsy... link to the right somewhere ------>
