1) My piece for today...ummmm...it looks better from this angle, at least I think it does. I drew this picture just out of my head, with no real visual reference...so I feel that the angle is off...but it captures what I was thinking today...head tilted back, eyes looking upward. So if you look at it and think, 'JLove, that looks a little off'...I am aware, and I agree...but I kind of like it. (Click here to see the regular straight on view)
Did I just reference myself in third person? My apologies.
2) Okay, so I used some red...and added some glitter. I really do have a reason for straying from my commitment to monochrome this month...so hear me out. My trainer (yep, I am trying to work on myself a bit) shared some stories of loss with me and this image came to me. A strong woman, looking up, thinking about those that had passed on, but always keeping their memory alive in her heart. As for the glitter...it doesn't need any justification, even if it is red glitter because...well, it's glitter. Duh.
And in alot of ways, (sorry for using 'alot', if my high school English teacher ever reads this, if so my syntax probably keeps her up at night...and love of ellipses...I digress...) I think that this is really what much of my works gravitates towards, whether directly or indirectly, not just the female figure, but the idea of love, and remembrance.
So, in summary, CED #139 is complete, and Angela L if you are reading this that piece is for you, even though I can't feel my arms and legs after your workouts yesterday and today. And yeah I used some red. And glitter.
