Life Canvas

The theme at Take A Word challenge this week is simply "Art" and what it means to you.

Art is color, beauty and  for me a sense of the feminine along with a connection to nature.  Art is different for every one. Some see the darker aspects of life and some see the skewed, surreal forms through art expression. Art is fantasy and the grotesque.
  Art makes you feel; it moves you and inspires you (both good and bad).  As long as it makes you react.... it is art.

This digital piece is made with imagery from art papers (Donna Estabrooks), Dover books and Finecrafted designs.

  16. I like your definition and finished piece. Your art always causes a reaction in me when I view it. I see layers and layers of emotion in each one of your creations. Love the colors in this one-the black seems to cause everything else to become more prominent.
