Creative Therapy: Three Muses
April 14, 2011
This month's prompt at the Creative Therapy Challenge Blog is: "Tell us about a favorite/special piece of clothing."
My contribution is called Three Muses:
It's a 16" x 20" mixed media painting. These are the three aprons that I wear when creating. You can find me in one of them most hours of most days. They are my uniform. And since I stitched up all three aprons, when painting them I was very aware of the unique shape and details of each. Here I am in each of them:
I had a lot of fun re-creating the patterned fabric of each apron.
And I was quite pleased that when I showed the painting to my Mother she immediately said, "It's your aprons!"
I made the girls somewhat faceless (and much skinnier than I am) as afterall, they're represenations not self-portraits!
And those are definitely the three hairdos I wear - pig tails, hair down, and a messy ponytail/bun.
I love that this painting is now sitting in my studio and my three muses are watching over me!
Thanks for stopping by!
