No special talent… only passionately curious… mixed media on canvas. The question do you need to have a special talent to carry out your dreams in your life or is it enough to have a healthy portion of curiosity to discover all your aspects? Well I think it’s nice if you have some special talent, of course it’s also a lot easier, and yes we all have some talent no matter for what. But talent as itself is not enough to fulfill our dreams. We need to have a great portion of curiosity to move us, to discover new ways, to experiment and to be able to grow. Even most of my works are born from a curiosity that makes me figure out what will happen if… I mix this with that or if I apply this over there… so that happened on this canvas as well experimenting out of curiosity:
I was beginning with a paper collage from Cold country papers from 7 dots studio.
I covered my collage with gesso and I applied some texture with modeling paste through gothic romance stencil.
I colorized my canvas with dylusion ink and painted with copper acrylic using the same gothic romance just repositioning my stencil. I added also some shades.
The middle part is cardboard, self-rusted embellishments, feathers and wool.
And finally a close up to the textures:
I am sharing my work with Mixed media place‘s challenge: curiosity.
What are you experimenting with today?
