About At Home in the World…

I try to be present and feel “at home in the world” no matter what happens.This figure enjoys the world with all her senses as she wades in the water and gazes at the moon.  Her hair, clothing, and features are vague so that she represents anyone and everyone.  The night sky, the saffron orange colors (like monks’ robes), the flying fish, and the waterlilly “lotus” flowers represent the spiritual part of life.

I started this piece with a light pencil sketch.  Next I layed in washes of color using inks and acrylics. The final layer was built up with colored pencils.

I used the white margins of the paper to try out each color and see how it interacted with the rest of the piece. Ink from technical pens make up the birds and the night sky.

    I am extremely impressed with your writing skills as well as with the layout on your blog.
    Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself? Either way keep up the nice quality writing, it is rare to see a nice blog like this one today.
