Earth

Title:     Earth

3Muses Challenge:  Use a circle in an artwork

The How/Source Imagery:

Earth was based on the idea of filling in a divided circle , much-manipulated magazine imagery was used to see how far I could go with it!

Picked broccoli and steak newspaper ads as the base and went from there...added a spruce tree in both =/- image from a backyard photo and a single PD photo ( ! ) of  ancient SW -now US SW States area  Anasazi ruins, and some texture photos I had from bark and sand close-ups..

When done, it reminded me of either a First Nations/Native American Dream-catcher or a Warriors sheild ..

In & Out/back&Forth of vacation/at home-time, this past week, this and next; so thought to submit this fitting piece I did a few months ago in when I came back and read the theme!

  2. I think you engaged in serious legerdemain here. Try as I might, I see no vestige of steak, broccoli, spruce, or Anasazi! It does, however, have the look of a dreamcatcher. Thanks for taking us on your art journey!

  9. Thank-you, everyone!
    I always love reading about how someone else creates their work...the hows and whys and ins and outs...just hoping I don't get too "wordy" sometimes about mine with my own comments!
