As I was creating this painting I was thinking about beauty. I have always believed there is beauty in everyone and everything, it just needs to be drawn out. True beauty is something that happens at a heart level, it's not surface. As I was creating this piece I was dissecting my own subconscious thoughts. It's easy for me to see beauty in others or to find beauty from a difficult circumstance. However, sometimes when it comes to me, I feel beauty= image or perfection. Yuk! That is so not true, but somehow I think our culture can deceive us in believing that. So, as I see beauty in everyone else, I am going to choose to see it in myself. Will you accept the challenge with me?
This "beauty" was created on an 8" x 8" wood cradled board with acrylic paints. It is framed in a 10" x 10" black float frame. It has a texture medium underneath and is varnished with a lovely gloss that makes a true statement of, well, imperfect beauty!
