Today the fun starts by reusing an old piece that didn’t light my fire, but the color was great.
I used a triple whammy with super heavy gesso and chalk paste in sage and vintage lace. So yummy. Covering the whole piece and then scraping back to reveal the stenciled image. I also pushed my paper into the gesso instead of laying them first. I just had so much fun playing with this one.
All the layers, of course, tell the story of the inspiration of this piece. This last week while talking to my son who is an entrepreneur and coach, he said “that we can’t be our true selves in a false story”.
That just spoke to my soul, ……. because for years I lived a false story, a story that I thought was the truth, stories that I picked up from childhood and adulthood. Words that were spoken into my life that someone else thought was my truth but wasn’t.
I didn’t know me well enough back then to know the difference.
I did a lot of work to find the truth, to find my truest self and I’m still doing the work!
I share more about it in the video. Enjoy!
