Paint Party Friday 14/2 " Nothing to Say"

Make Sure to click on any of the artwork to see clearer details!

It's Friday, so make sure to visit  all the talented artist on Paint Party Friday!!

The first thing I want to share is this amazing post on Laurie Millers blog called Birth of a Bridge! In this post Laurie walks us through her mind of doubts as she works on a commissioned piece for her city! Every artist can relate to that negative chatter that paralyzes our creative mojo! I promise you won't be disappointed at she intimately shares her process to a happy ending!
Flush of Flowers
I always enjoy when other artists share their process 
so I thought this week I might share  a snippet of mine!
I sketched the ugly little  code of arms broach below,
 then colored it in pencil crayons!
Every piece of art on this page came from this one piece!!!
Involved were digital edits and color edits and 
my basic paint program on windows!!
The above picture turned into the one below!!
Rich in color and detail...it's fun to stare at and look
for possible characters!
I was working on the girls above and decided to take the
older woman out of the picture!! 
But when I took her out this man appeared and  totally creeped me out!!! 
Has that ever happened to you? Seriously all I did was trace around the woman
and this guy came into the picture!! I tried to get him out. 

After much frustration
 I decided he would stay in the background of the final piece! 
Maybe there is a message here somewhere!! 
I have been stewing all week  regarding an 
issue with my niece and nephew. 
I am so sad for them I just can't get it off my mind!  
Nothing can be done, Nothing can be said!
Nothing to say!

Marvelous piece. As to the process, I know exactly what you mean. The art process can tell us so much about ourselves, as well as being healing. As a Christian, I also use it as a prayer and believe God speaks to me through it sometimes. Blessings!

Lynn Cohen said...

digital art facinates me. I have no idea how it's done. Lovely outcome.

Ayala Art said...

The progress of this piece is wonderful and surprising. I'm glad you left the shape of the man in there too, makes the eye travel, the mind think... and the "ugly" start wasn't that ugly after all hey? I liked it.

deeplyrootedinbeing said...

Excellent! My favorite was Flush of flowers!! Thank you so much for sharing and happy PPF!

Elisa Choi said...

I adore your process. A creative way of experimenting and it turns out greatly. I hope your niece and nephew are okay!

Ooh so scrummy - what a great post. Love love love all that you did!

Sinderella's Studio said...

lots of work! I like end piece too.
cheers, dana

Forgetfulone said...

Your details are amazing! And I love the colors. I really love those flowers.

Jez said...

These and your process are fantastic. I really feel that using a digital programme like this takes one's art to another level that is beyond what hand work can do. And together the two ways of working produce unusual and original art. Really like this and all the detail.

Your creativity is amazing!!

JKW said...

Wow that is amazing. . . and then to add her back in with the shadow around her. I love your creativity. The massive works at the beginning, (thanks for telling us to click in to see it up close) is amazing. It is also fun to stare at and see each item stand out at you. What a talent you are. The Flush of Flowers I can see as a quilt. Blessings, Janet PPF
