This project was inspired by several things. I did a few more experiments with my wet strength tissue paper.
I was also reading in my quiet time this week from Morgan Harper Nichols book “All along you were blooming”
She writes ” Perhaps this is the season to step fully into the beautiful reality of what it means to be free:
Brave and adventurous and ready for the journey of learning and growing, of living and knowing, you don’t have to have every answer to breathe deep and keep going.”
It spoke to my soul, I feel as if I’m in this season. This season of letting go, of being brave in this curiosity phase of my work and my personal life. It was a good reminder that I don’t have to have all the answers…. but to lean into deep breaths.
This original is created on birch wood. With sides and back painted black. Lots of layers of vintage papers and paint. Signed and sealed with a soft matte sealer.
