walk softly with your dreams

TITLE: Walk Softly With Your Dreams.
Prints available in my etsy shop

with this painting, i had so much fun with color! i really let the character come out of the background, while being conscious of allowing some of the background to remain showing underneath parts of her body and face.

this piece is all about imagination and thought. i’ve always thought it would be amazing to actually have thought bubbles fly from our heads to capture a visual of what we imagine. and this girl is sort of walking timeless. she could exist at any point in history. yet her connection to all of humanity still remains. and so much of that connection exists in her balance between the material and immaterial world, and the ability to imagine just what she truly desires and bring it into life.

this piece was created using all sorts of materials…acrylic paints, india ink, pastel, charcoal, pencil and origami paper and vintage gold origami paper from my Great Aunt June’s collection. on top, i applied an antique decoupage finish to add extra softness and protect the painting from the elements


ps. coming up in the next few weeks i’ll be making another BIG SHOP UPDATE with all of the originals I’ve been painting! if you’re interested in any originals you see before then, just let me know! best wishes!
