THE HUNGER GAMES
Little did I know when I created this art during the week that I would start reading The Hunger Games yesterday. "I am scared!"
I read the first 60 pages and I am freaking out! I am seeing myself in the future - crying, heart pounding, and wanting to hold poor little Prim in my arms.
I am the last person on earth to read the book and I didn't want to see the movie. As I write this...I want to RUN and read the rest - "who am I?" I don't recognize myself. I better finish before this Mother's Day but I'm scared!!!! (don't tell me, don't tell me - well ok, you can tell me if I should be scared! lol)
So the art must have been a premonition art piece(s). I hope you enjoy! I've thrown in some birdies to soften the blow (I created the birdie pieces after the Hunted Pieces....I had to because I was so freaked out where my mind and feelings went in the Primary Art I'm showing you.) Talk about trying to escape my darkness! (no comments from the peanut gallery! lol)
For these two pieces (the Huntress and the Hunted) I used watercolors on The Visual Journal and seran wrap and tap tap tap and then tipped and turned and twirled the journal until I found something that looked like something. I was floored when this "darkness" within "me" evolved onto the page! My inner question afterward: "who am I - the Hunted or the Huntress - or both?"
Next is my "soften it all up" ArtIn the next two pieces, I tried my hand at drawing "free-hand" (all except the black stamp accents) and see whether I felt "close" to the outcome or not. I was surprised that I actually "dug" what evolved from just mucking around with a pencil, which would definitely not be my style (the muck around part.)
this is a preview of what is to come next week.
Pages with lots of fancy shmancy lettering!
Have a super duper weekend
