Celestial Dreams


I revisited the Mary Todd Beam book, Celebrate Your Creative Self, tonight and worked on composition.  This painting uses the concept of "circles" in composition.  I painted it in watercolor on a piece of mat board and then manipulated the image with photoshop so that I have both the original and the adjusted posted here.

A unique blend of modern and ancient, in my eyes, Barb. Reminds me of the ancient times (think maybe Druidic) when women (and men, I suppose) worshiped deities, wore ram horns...Boy. I hope I don't sound like a nut job. Anyway, this is a delight!

Interesting take on this one, AutumnLeaves! I can see how you saw that...it is always interesting to hear differing opinions about my work - people see things so differently. Thanks for your insight!
