This painting is in honor of my niece, Heather, who is returning tomorrow to Panama where she is a Peace Corps volunteer. Featured are: Holly, my sister, dressed in a tunic made up of the word love and it's synonyms, representing her great mother's love....Heather, dressed in the word Blessings, as she is a blessing to her biological and Panamanian families.....and her sister Kelly, who is wearing the word radiant, representing her constant strength and support for her family.
"Onetangi Girls" is my favorite so far. I used the yarn sample cards, dressed the "girls" in music pieces, and for heads gave them shells from Onetangi Beach, NZ. I loved these shells...their shape and luminosity....and collected them when walking up and down the beach for the wedding.
this girl is made with a yarn sample card, which reminds me of the female shape. So, I dressed her with some lovely Italian paper (thanks Holly), and she's on her way! Puffy cheeks and all, just like me.
