I had such a wonderful and productive time in Charlotte…I met so many gifted women and made new friends…and I know I said that I would give you the whole run down but I am doing that …..chasing my tail…. 2 steps forward…..3 steps back…. just got back in town and now husband out of town….DANCE that I just feel I will not be able to give each artist their fair share of my time…so I will skip that part for today and get right to the …
OCTOBER GIVEAWAY #4
If you have followed my blog for any amount of time, you will recognize this view in the photo above as the “Adult Living room” aka MY Living room…but there are some elements that I have not spoken to for quite some time…follow the arrow above…and it points to…
I painted these silhouettes of my children 6 years ago…when they were 7, 9 and 11. And I still paint them as commissions and gifts. There are features that you notice in a silhouette that you can miss in “real life” or in a regular photograph. For example…in my children’s silhouettes, I SEE myself more…MY profile ….my husbands chin…my nose…features that make my heart ache…ME in THEM …the truth and the beauty of their perfect PERFECT silhouettes….
My children’s silhouettes are some of my most treasured objects…..
…and besides the living beings and my photographs would be the next thing I would grab in case of a fire…
They are precious to me.
..I adore them and I LOVED painting them…
….and here is where you come in!
Leave me a comment and tell me what a Silhouette means to you? Did your parents have them of you growing up? Have you gotten them of your children? Given them as gifts?
THE WINNER WILL BE CHOSEN BY RANDOM.ORG AND WILL RECEIVE ONE FREE SILHOUETTE IN THE COLORS OF THEIR CHOICE!!!
