Goddess of Inner Beauty - Original Painting on Canvas
"Goddess of Inner Beauty" is my original mixed media painting on unstretched canvas (unframed) and measures 18x 25 inches. Mixed media elements include handmade paper, sheet music, pages from a book of fairy tales and pages from a botanical dictionary.
This was the first painting I created during my residency at Chateau Orquevaux -- probably because I needed to invoke a spirit of self-acceptance and love before forging ahead with my own paintings in a new, often competitive environment. It's important to remember that people cannot always see the beauty that lies beneath our exterior. But if we are kind, caring and loving, that beauty blooms from within and gives us strength.
