Not sure what to make of this one. I started out with a photo of a friend's daughter, set it aside a few months ago and then picked it up today. I think I'll interpret the text as related to the idea that perhaps, within my friend's troubled-if not anguished- relationship with her daughter's father, she could find some peace in in the glorious life of their child. The painting morphed into a (romanticized big-eyed) dead ringer for me at about 7 years old. My sister Amanda's birthday was yesterday, maybe this painting is also an homage to us. Whaddaya think sista?
I got a Faber Castle mixed media collage kit for a young friend but it turns out I am way more interested than she. The panel and background paper in this collage are from that kit. Its really neat with all sorts of designed paper and pictures and words. Instantly gratifying.
