"In My House Art Transforms My Soul." I made this house in response for several prompts this week: Arty Girlz Butterfly Challenge, Crazy Amigo's Faces Challenge, Ma Maison's Bijou Challenge ( I promise there is a jewel in the compass center; it just didn't show up well in the scan)and for One Powerful Hour's Architecture Challenge, and I'm not sure that I'm entirely pleased with it. If you click on the image or change your zoom, you can see the details better. I enjoyed the process, especially the texturing, and I like the theme, the colors, and the symbols. All the negative space around the house bothers me, though. Maybe I'm just a gaudy woman, but I've I've always subscribed to the theory that too much is never enough. I must study it for a while and see if I need to alter it in some way. This morning, probably due to the copious amounts of coffee I drank, I had a minor (but happy) cropping accident, which I will post later when I get home from school. Anyway, try to picture this: lop off the house part of this piece and enlarge the butterfly girl, making it a long horizontal image. I like that composition so much better,and I think it will become a painting someday. Please leave a comment and tell me what you think I should do about this page. I think a bit of collaboration would help.
(Later)Okay, here's what she looks like cropped. I think she would make a great blog banner. I wish I knew how to make a banner that would extend all the way across my blog, Anyone, anyone?
