Come and follow me on Facebook! :D http://www.facebook.com/plantiebees Phew well the first piece for my Fragile Things collection has begun!The Fragile Things collection is inspired by the novel of the same title as Neil Gaiman.There is a fabulous quote in the beginning of the book which reads:"These people ought to know who we are and tell that we are here"This painting first invoked the thought "My Heart is Always Empty" - and brought about a hollow like chest, with flowers growing out of her head in rich colors while a hummingbird fed from them. The sense was something fragile in the shadows, almost fading out and coming back in. She is my lady in the dark if you will. Look at her eyes, she has a story. And just as Mr. Gaiman quoted from a comic...people ought to know she is there! This is an acrylic painting on masonite board measuring 40 x 60 cm Prints are available on my Etsy shop here!: http://www.etsy.com/listing/96472241/pink-magnolia-hummingbird-dark-portrait This was modelled by the beautiful Mita, who invoked the emotion of a sort of sweet hollowness which I tried to capture. Thanks so much Mita!
