Tattoo



This is something of a departure for me. It's a variation on a colored pencil piece my darling daughter made in art school. (Sarah's website)
Her picture is framed and on my wall and I just love it and thought I would attempt to recreate it in acrylics with some changes. I'll have a link to her piece as soon as I can take a decent picture of it, since it doesn't fit in my scanner. Here it is.

This is such a wonderful piece. The colors are so striking and the lizard is perfect. Your daughter's art is amazing as well. You defintiely passed your artistic genes on to her!

I've been waiting for your entry, Jaimie! It's fantastic -- I love the way you've abstracted it and it looks three dimensional in places -- and then it takes on another three dimensions if you look at it differently. Kind of Escher-esque. (PS Your daughter is beautiful and very talented)

I was waiting for your entry (ops, Andrea was waiting as well… you got groupies) and I am so glad I didn’t had to wait too long. Great job with interpretation and love the color combination!

How wonderful that you and your daughter can share something like a passion for art. She is quite talented herself. Super interpretation of her piece!

Jamie - this is really stunning. At first glimpse it's abstract, but then the neck and chin emerge. The lizard seems to be coming to life on her neck, captured beneath her choker. Quite wonderful! Your daughter's original piece is exquisiste... such talent in one family:> And yes, count me among the groupies. I've been wondering what you'd do. This is worth the wait!

Funny, I always pictured you as a 20-something young artist! Just shows how you never really know... Your work has such an infusion of youth, vitality,beauty, colour and a unique vision! Love this! your daughter is a kindred spirit to you, how wonderful and she is so pretty too!

The colors are brilliant, which is something I always admire about your work and which inspires me to be bolder in my own endeavors. In fact, before I "met" you years ago, any painting I did was always pretty muted and pastel-y.

Of course, I love the lizard! Yay lizards!

This is very appealing, would make an interesting tatto, I took a look at the original your Sarah created, really marvelous looking.

Your work is simply beautiful! I spent some time looking at your other entries...absolutely wonderful work!
Hey, if Natalie Cole can "collaborate" on a song with her father even after he passed away why can't a mother and a daughter collaborate on art?!

That's a beautiful tattoo. Love the lizard under the choker.

Wonderful... as your posts always are. I had also missed your 'insect' and 'tea' posts... Where has the time gone? Beautiful, all.
