Wow that was really sappy, but none the less its TRUE!!
When I created this background it had such a strong
tropical feel and while I resisted it at first, I gave in.
Nearly 8 years ago my husband and I flew to Hawaii
on our Honeymoon and spent 2 wonderful weeks
among the most vibrant of colors.
Hawaii was created in HD, before HD was invented!!
Rather then blend the colors of her face
I left them "blocked" so it would
have a tribal feel to it.
Remembering my "coppertone" sunscreen I added copper
to her skin color for an unexpected look.
She kind of goes along with the Child of Earth series I started
I left the ends of her hands open so as to blend with her
Her dance is a distant memory of a
private lagoon that has been taken over by man ...
Looking at what I was creating just a few months ago when I first started I am in awe of myself and feel very blessed to be where I am and and see where I am going!
I am especially appreciative of Juliette Crane who teaches these amazing classes and has been a support for me :)
