Rest on the water which is what this piece is titled, was just what happened this week.
The water is always this place of peace for me, plus I got to get out to the water this week with my kids! Bonus!
As the world begins to open back up again, We are getting in as much time with our people as possible. So I took some time this week to hug and laugh and sing and realize how grateful I am.
That was the inspiration for this piece and I’ll share more about it in the video.
I knew what I wanted to create but actually making it happen didn’t go quite as planned. You see in the video how I struggled to integrate my tissue paper photos.
I also struggled with contrast, but I fixed it and let go of a few things along the way.
I hope you enjoy the project.
