This theme is Grow. I wanted to post yesterday but it rained a little bit in New Orleans, and the city and the suburbs almost flooded! The boss let us go home at 2:30 p.m., during a lull in the storms.
The background is an old book. I put two or three layers of gesso last summer and colored it in watercolor.
I wanted to show how life passes when you grow through the growth of a hand.
I traced my hand with a marker, then I found a baby's hand in a magazine ad, traced it and enlarged the baby's hand to draw the middle one.
The baby's hand is on musical notes with various pencil colors. The middle hand is a library date due sticked, painted in oil pastels.
I also added some botanical images with stamps and paper. The paper has leaves or trees. The stamps are of plants.
