Collage in Painter IX. Printed out onto 5x7 glossy photo paper.
In December I replied to a posting by Andrea where she offered 5 pieces of art to the first five people who replied and were willing to also offer 5 pieces on their blogs.
I got two responses to my first posting and two to my second. (Though I've yet to get addresses to which to send them from two of these people.) Joy Eliz negotiated a swap with me instead of offering five. And so far none of the others have offered five on their blogs yet...(have you?) so I thought it would be worth doing a rule change and saying straight out that its up to you whether or not you keep the tag going, no pressure from me at all.
I knew I needed to. I've been blocked with respect to actually making art for people. At the time I thought I'd get around this by making 5 things before offering. However then I got into this Soul Collaging and things have changed. I don't want to send out just any old bit of work to anyone. I do want to make them especially. And although they aren't sent yet I've done four SoulCollage® cards for the four takers. Just in case you don't know who you are, you are: Tinker, JohnnyNorms, Joy Eliz, Leah. Thank you to all four of you for your support - it really was and is appreciated!
The picture above is the one that is left. The fifth piece. And its for whoever tells me they want it AND sends me their address - whether or not they plan to offer 5 pieces of art on their blogs.
As I don't know who will get it, its not a soul collage card. So I based it on medicine animals and symbols. It contains:
- An eagle for far seeing - yet also able to discern useful detail
- A butterfly for transformation - a totem that eases one through life's necessary changes
- A medicine bear for healing
- An igloo lit by Chinese lanterns against Northern lights as a pathfinding guide
- There is also a version of one of my SoulCollage® cards that is as yet unnamed but might be a version of The Fool (as in standard Tarot)
Does anyone want this one?
