Sisterlocks-Look I am a beautiful butterfly

I have been in a natural hair cocoon for seven years. I started this blog to chronicle the life and times of my sisterlocks. And from time to time any other random thing that suites my fancy or draws my ever so curious mind.

Freedom


I am one of those people who is not happy unless I am using my hands, painting, sewing, making cards anything creative. I rarely "create" for myself. Growing up both of my parents put a huge value on creativity. To this day the biggest gift for my mother is something that comes my hands. More than eight years ago I painted this picture. The painting is titled,"Freedom." Unfortunately, most of the painting is cut off. The woman in this painting has her hands outstretched and she has on ballet shoes, her feet are in "fifth position." Again, I do not know what inspired me to paint her but, it seems funny that it took me eight years to get the the "freedom" shown in this painting. I am so glad I woke up!

    Very nice work... I like the shadow work and the purple pops out nicely... Great use of contrast with the yellow, too... Cool to look at!

    This is a beautiful painting and I was immediately attracted to it. This Sisterlocks journey is all about finding self - the path is different for everyone - the important thing is that we're on the path. Welcome home to "freedom" and thanks for sharing with us.
