Forever...

Saturday, 11 May 2013

...today starts the real journey...

The first phrase of a poem written by S for his beloved... and having spent time composing her a tender expression of their relationship he wanted a special way of presenting it to her & liked the idea of a canvas. Three kinds of butterfly are mentioned though we didn't want them representing directly...


...perhaps using the textures of earlier work


 Or maybe using patterns of butterfly wings...

I don't really present my ideas very well. I'm either working on a piece 'properly' or I'm not, and I'm sure S wondered at what he would get after seeing my initial thoughts that I don't think he wasn't particularly impressed with! Once I started working though, things came together... layers of colour first, then some black, and a bit more colour lashed on quite thick & scraped off & back on again & scrunched with cling film...



Dr Martins Bleedproof white is a good solid white that stands out beautifully on a dark background... I didn't want the lines of text to be too rigid so let them drift a bit....

It could have been finished at this point, but I felt it needed a little something... so i went back to the butterfly wing snippets and scattered them in the space that needed filling.




Even if you thought the first photo was ok, you can see that the final three squares make all the difference. S approved...

Oh My its awesome!!!!
I absolutely love it Suzi…you are going to make a woman cry! 

And it seemed that she liked it too...

Suzi you made  pretty girl cry like forever...


It seems like part of my job description is to make people cry!!
