My Island landscape is finished.
It is about having time,space and peace to remember. In ancient folklore Dandelion seeds were seen as carriers of messages for long lost loved ones... a wonderful thought.
It is a mixed media piece on canvas.
I also intensified the purples and pinks.
I follow the wonderful Jane Davies blog 'collage journeys'. She wrote recently a piece on how do you know when a piece is finished? she wrote...
" I am often asked the question: How do you know when a piece is finished? There is a long answer, which I try to give at workshops. And as I give the long answer, I'm trying to find it for myself as well. It is not a neatly packaged answer, but involves tangents and detours. The short version is this: you know that a piece is finished when it isn't bugging you for more development. When the piece gives you that "a Ha" feeling, and there isn't one thing about it that is niggling at you, then it is done. When the conversation is over, your piece stops "talking" to you and stands on its own two feet"
A wonderful description!
This piece has finally stopped talking to me! :)
