Here is one of the most recent pieces I’ve finished. There’s just one small problem…I’m having trouble coming up with a name for the piece. Whenever I see the piece, I think stately woman in chair. Hopefully you can help me come up with something a little bit better. Let me tell you a little about her.
My inspiration came from a recent art call put out by Somerset Studio. The call was for “aubergine”. To me aubergine (you know that lovely plum/eggplant color) says royalty, elegance and sophistication. For the background I used opera music, lovely handwritten ledger paper (in purple ink!), a princess story from an old book and scrapbook paper. Now as the background was coming together I realized that I was not using aubergine at all but had embraced shades of burgundy instead. Undaunted, I continued on with the piece. When I crossed the image of the “stately woman in chair” I knew she would be my focal image…after all, she seemed like the definition of elegance sitting so regally in her chair. Alas I finished my aubergine inspired piece, fully realizing that it would never see publication under the aubergine call…well, being burgundy and all it just wasn’t meant to be.
So here is where you come in. Leave a comment on my blog with your suggestion(s) for a title and you’ll be entered to win a $25 gift certificate for my etsy shop. The winner will be randomly selected on Tuesday, July 21.
Okay…let the suggestions begin!
