Well, Gail went and did it again! I really was going to give this months Mind Wide Open challenge a pass due to a very busy schedule. But I just had to sneak over and see what the image was and I ended up staying up into the wee hours last night to do this piece.
I am calling it ‘Capture The Moment’, which I have represented with the little caged butterfly. The word prompt at MWO is ‘Beginnings’ and I have included the beginnings of wings, sprouting from her back. These represent her first attempts to soar on her own. The beginning of the journey to find her true self. Remember when your child first starts to venture out on their own? It can be frustrating and make you proud, all in the same moment.
Using a 10×10 canvas, I applied the image first and then added molding paste around it, stamping into it for even more texture. Acrylic paints, water soluble crayon, stamping, drawing, and some charcoal combine to give it a wintry feel. A little butterfly also hangs from a string
a true ‘captured moment’. Voting starts on
This piece is available in my etsy shop and remember, I am offering free shipping the entire first week in December, on all original works.
