Glitter Market here I come!
This Spring I have worked on two very different series...
One happy and one a bit...odd.
My Zinnia Garden Series came about as I was playing around.
I think I had been looking at my dreary garden and longing for my zinnias.
Once the colors started forming, I couldn't stop!
This series was inspired by Eye Miniatures from the 1700's. Somehow, online I found one and was so intrigued, I started digging around for more information. In the 1700s, tiny portraits of a loved one's eye was encased in a beautiful piece of jewelry (broach, ring, etc.) as a sign of affection. I loved this idea and was moved to paint my own eyes...obviously larger.
See You Tomorrow!!
