I have another finished acrylic painting to show you this week. This one is bigger. I'd tell you how big but I just don't feel like going to measure it right now. I started with fingerpainting the rosey colored swirls, and just like the other painting of the Great Mother, this Mother just appeared as well. Her hair was even bigger at first, taking up the whole top of the painting but I finally realized that had to be toned down a bit. That was about the only part I struggled with at all.... this was actually a very easy painting to create.
I did however learn that you can't paint over acrylic ink like you can regular acrylic.... even when it's dry it smears into the new color you add. The red and black lines on this are acrylic ink and next time I won't add them until I am sure I am done changing background colors and such.
She is of this earth.
She holds all in her warm arms....
safe... and warm.... and home.
