New (Big) Piece
I spoke a few posts ago about wanting to do a larger piece. For one, just because I'm looking for a bit of a challenge, and also because there is a spot on my wall that is empty. The piece is 24"x24"- not huge, but certainly larger than my normal stuff.
So what do you think? I'm still trying to decide myself. It's sort of a case of having looked at a piece for so long that I can't "see" it anymore, you know? It was definitely difficult-working larger requires so much more thought and work! Most of my imagery is smaller, so it takes a lot to fill a large space. But I'm happy with my balance of negative space and focal imagery. And I like the layered feel of the background quite a bit. And I really love the color palette... Hmmm, I guess it appears that I do like it, doesn't it?
My sister saw it and said, "What happens if you have another baby?". I remember a personalized Sesame Street piece we had when I was young that my mom had to take back in to have "re-personalized" when my youngest sister was born! I don't think that's an option with this one... oh well, if I have another baby at some point, I guess I'll just have to do a new piece!
