Here is the thing about this piece..... it came together rather intuitively. This never happens to me and finding that inner voice has been such a struggle. I just wanted to play around with techniques one day so I started layering paint and newspaper on these envelopes and then tearing the paper back off to reveal layers. When I decided I was done I had a background that I really liked. But as usual I had no idea what to do with it. It hung around on my design wall for several weeks while this teeny tiny little voice in my head kept whispering " add lillies made of more inter office envelopes". I resisted. Resistance is my specialty. But I kept getting the same message and eventually I caved in and went for it. This is the first pieces I've made that my husband genuinely likes. The first piece that won an award. Hmmmm. I'm guessing that that intuitive voice in my head knows what its doing. Now I just need to learn to hear it better.
