This was made for the Art Challenge over at Hands and Hearts. I joined the Zodiac group over there and this is my take on Aquarius. How it works over there is, every month has a different zodiac sign, and each month you create something based on the inspiration from the sign. You may use any medium, technique, you may write a poem, a story, paint, draw, collage, make a doll, just about anything, the important is to follow your inspiration at the moment! You just read the descriptions of the sign to get inspired. I am learning a lot about signs etc. Aquarius is "The Water Carrier" January 21 to February 19. I was inspired by the water part, so I created a girl floating under the water...I was just going for a peaceful, relaxing image. I drew and painted this one..no graphics involved. Let me know if you think it worked :) I would like to dedicate this painting to Jessica Grundy whos art work has always been an inspiration for me and she is an Aquarius too. Happy Birthday!
I thought I would make one for Capricorn = Dec 22nd - Jan 19th. It is a little late, but better late than never right? I thought I should have all the months if I was going to do this, so here is my take on Capricorn. This is more of a mixed media project. I used an imag I made previously. I had printed the main image, water color painted it, added some sparkle, then took a picture of it and worked on it graphically by adding it to a background, added some horns, some special effects and the word Capricorn. "They are realted to the goat because of their tendency to climb high mountains and walk easily through rocks and unevenly paths, meaning that even they strugle in the hard work of life, they succed reaching the top, it is said that when older they stay there to contemplate the view and start a mistic life because of their earned wisdom. Capricorns are great friends and they are solid but sometimes too much and they tend to stay focused on one simple idea, place or relationship, sometimes they are painted with a fish tale" Hope you like it... I am thinking about taking one of there Mixed Media art classes over there...hummmm it is a year long class..how fun is that??
My blogs are for me to create things a little out of the normal, expand my imagination and dig a little deeper!! I am always looking to learn something new and rarely afraid to step out of my comfort zone. I hope you will join me on my journey.
We are only limited by our own imaginations. Who knows what is on the other side of the next "click".
