Today was a true adventure and a journey into my curiosity agreement with myself. The layers are so delicious, I’m a little giddy.
My inspiration this week comes from Kaj Ard from Finland. I found him on Pinterest as I was looking for quotes, but I fell in love!
He explains his art as a journey of history. And what history leaves behind. I loved that explanation and it resonated with me because I always try to leave my history and story in each piece that I create. Our story is always part of our art, because our art is part of us.
I layered, all kind of things to create this amazing texture. I’ll share what I use in the video.
I hope you enjoy the video. And always know that you are loved!
