This piece didn’t go as I had planned, I wanted it to be grungier, but I just followed where it was going and I’m glad I did.
Once I got the initial gesso layer on to push back the papers, it looked like a misty morning in the garden. And I loved it.
I used a poem from “All along you were blooming” by Morgan Harper Nichols. I didn’t use the exact quote, I changed it to fit me and where I’m at right now.
I find that I can let a lot of weeds into my life that steal my gratitude and joy and I forget just how beautiful the garden of my life can be.
So I used parts of the quote to create some change and meaning and of course this piece, and I love it!
I’ll share all about it in the video.
I hope you enjoy the project and always know that you are loved!
