The Road Followed


12x15 mix media on canvas. I used a old photo and did a transfer on this one and then using acrylic tinted it. I also used wax and ink and acrylic on the back ground. Yes I know the color does not show very well and you need to click on it to get a better look. I did ask for a new and improved camera for my Bday but I am thinking it could just be the person taking the shots..That would be ME.
I think when I saw this girl, she had had a sadness about her but there was still a sparkle in her eyes.. As the piece says .....The Road she traveled took her on journeys she never dreamed. The road traveled, broke her heart but not her Spirit.
We all take roads in our life's, they take us on journeys some of love and lost and journey of pure joy but the thing in life is that no matter what happens in our life's, we can never let life break our spirit. Never give up on your dreams. Where your dreams are about Love or the Love of being a Artist. NEVER LET LIFE BREAK YOUR SPIRIT.
Thanks for stopping and listening to my stories and looking at my art. I also want you all to know I try to stop and visit your blogs and etc.. Your work is always terrific and the places I get to visit and the friends I have met. I am blessed to have such great friends from all over the world. Thanks and may you all always dream in color.

"The road you traveled, is the one you were meant to take." Wow your image is so fitting and ... this quote is almost word for word what I just got done posting on another friend's blog before visiting yours! Annie over at the "In My Dreams" blog had posted about getting her childhood wish to see Mont St. Michel in France, and I had told her she was the right one meant for the journey. The timing of seeing your blog entry now almost sends shivers up my spine!

What an excellent artistic image you've created. I love how you feature the cross and the heart. God gives us light and strength and joy for our path.

Wow! Beautiful...I love the way the woman tends to "fade" into the background...yet still be a focal point!

Junkin Yaya said exactly what I wanted to say.....the way the woman fades but remains a focal point. Intriguing!
