Last Monday I went on a journey that connected me with turtles and butterflies. Then I had some difficult days, which I did not blog about.
During the difficult days, the image of turtles and butterflies kept calling out. “Escape the pain and confusion and bring us to life!” the said, in voices that whispered with the breeze and swished like the water.
Not knowing exactly what I wanted to do, I wandered over to the local Wal-Mart (the only place nearby that I knew I could find some limited supplies) an browsed. I ended up buying four canvas panels and some oil pastels. Granted, if I knew better, I would recognize that oil pastels don’t work that well on canvas, but I was just going with the flow.
I have designed something that together forms a whole image, while each panel serves as its own separate individual image. I will share two of them with you now, as they are the most complete. When I finish the other two, I will share the whole. They are not perfect, but sometimes you simply need to express yourself in a different way. The Moon Lady was my first (and probably the best), now comes Turtle Wings.
