"Queen Ursula" - mixed media on aquabord, 16" x 20". Ready to frame, or can be leaned against a wall upon a shelf.
Available here and at Artfinder.
I'm finishing up some odds and ends in the studio. Not to say this one is odd...I think she is sweetness itself. Ursula began at the Miami Watercolor Society demo waaaaay back in January. She is delighted to be fully dressed and ready to receive visitors. :)
Ursula means "little bear" or "she-bear." There is some good mojo in a name like that. Her dress is made of gelli-plate printed paper from four different sessions, and yet somehow all this little pieces wove a beautiful fabric together.
Kind of how life sometimes all comes together even when the bits that are merging seem oddly paired.
As an artist, I hear a lot of industry talk about art being a non-necessity - that people won't buy it during troublesome times, that it is a luxury item and so on. And perhaps, for some, it is so. But through my own collecting I am experiencing the opposite: art is more necessary during dark days and uncertainty. It brings a feeling of hope and limitlessness, adventure and possibility.
And so I am curious, dear reader! What impact (if any) does the art on your walls have on you? Are there pieces you treasure and why? Leave a comment below. One of you will be selected at random to receive a small piece of my art. Let's deck the walls!
