Last week, I talked to a friend about that special place art leads us to.
A private place where I can disconnect from the outer world and enter my realm, full of magic (paint and color!).
I'm so thankful for having this magic place.
A place where I can dream
cut, paint, sew, use my hands,
think things over and out,
and enjoy every minute of it all!
That's what I had in mind when I made this canvas.
I transferred a picture of a door I took some time ago (one of many I have. I love doors!), and from there on, some more transfers, gesso, many layers of papers and medium, and a few lines from a song in Hebrew, translated to something along the lines of, "I'll give you the key (to the magic door), come in and be my guest".
I love the way that little heart turned out, all red and shiny and alive, as opposed to the muted transfers.
And I absolutely love all the texture:
Doesn't it make you want to touch and feel all those bumps and curves? :-)
