I haven't had been able to get a good photo of this piece that I've been working on called Journey to Womanhood. This was hung on the wall and taken with my iphone. I hope to find a black backdrop to set off the white background and pull out my good camera sometime this week but for now this will have to do.
|Journey to WomanHood 1' X 3'|
I layered the canvas with vintage book pages. The titles of each page tell a story, the story of the voyage from Maidenhood to Womanhood. The titles read: **The Maiden** The Courtship ** Somebody's Darling ** Leave her to Heaven (let her keep her purity) ** How to Avoid Housework** An Accidental Woman ** Mrs. Who ** Mr. John Bailey Appears ** and finally in her sarong ** The Perfect Wife **
I drew the figures in black and white charcoal on top of the book pages and splashed the painting with gesso that I textured and stamped into while it was wet.
I don't often explain my art but this one tells a story about how we all wake up one day to discover we've become a Woman (or an adult for my male readers...LOL) and how as we mature into Womanhood we often are reaching back at times to get in touch with our younger selves.
