Goddess Inspire, or Flicker of Imagination
Golden Fluid Acrylic and Prismacolor Watercolor Pencils on Paper, 7"x10"
Goddess Inspire came out of nowhere, and yet she is all around.
In fact, don't you think you know her? Wasn't she that girl down the block? Didn't you see her in that place the other day?
She's so familiar.
The flicker of this painting came when I realized the next Thursday Sweet Treat prompt was "Flicker of Imagination" although, I think I thought it was Flicker of Inspiration. Either way, I imagined a girl looking out at us. Maybe also seeing a couple of portraits in and around blogland had a portrait happening in my mind.
But what was really interesting was what happened when the drawing (with watercolor pencils) was covered with paint. Things happened I did not expect and her face changed as I painted. When I added the hair/shadows even more happened. And I left the edges bare mostly because it seemed to want to be unfinished.
This girl really did come out of nowhere, and I really do feel like I know her, but she doesn't match anyone I know. Do you know her? Can you place that face?
I think she is a goddess. When you let your inspiration take over, do you see a face of the goddess, too?
