I love the mystery the transparency and layering create in art. What is hidden is nearly as interesting (or more even) than what is shown clearly. Now with Rosalie, she has a habit of introducing the subject - pointing you in the right direction - and then letting you play with it. That kind of approach always leads me to a kind of creative heaven. I mean, you gotta love a supply list that reads like this:
Sounds fun right? She also wants us to start collecting inspirational pictures and looking at how other artists effectively use transparency in their pieces. Once you start looking you can see how artists use it to convey emotion, movement, mystery, time passage etc.
Its enough to make a girl's head spin!!
A big thank you goes out to all you well - wishers! Its been fun playing the role of proud Momma for a while - especially since we got a bit surprise at graduation.... it was announced that Tessa was this year's McAuley Award Winner as the person who best exemplifies the Mercy Charism of service, justice, hospitality, compassionate presence and concern for the dignity of all persons.
Its such an honor and finally proves to my daughter that sometimes - just sometimes - the good guy finishes first!
So What Have Been Up to Creatively?
