November BJP Finished

Well, I wasn't sure if she was finished or not...but as I looked at her, I felt she really was complete.

At the top & bottom of this focal piece, it felt messy, unfinished, open. Then I realized that it was exactly what I wanted her to be...ascending, breaking barriers, & opening up! I love her!



I had to show her on a white background so you could see the edges. But I'm learning more about photographing pieces, editing & what I really like to show. I don't necessarily like this piece on white as much as I do on black, or a neutral color. But for the sake of detail, she'll remain this way.

And, about that hole in her head, well, I figured it out. I like what I finally decided to do with it!

For some reason, this piece really says more about me, & this month, than any of the others I've done to date. Not sure if it's using one of my favorite pieces as a focal point, the colors, the theme, or that I just didn't have any question on what to do! Finally, huh? ;) It really was a freeing piece of work!

She's beautiful. The headband was inspired. You are right; she is just as she should be. Scrumptious!

She's gorgeous! I'd call her Ixchel, goddess of fertility....but she's yours so you can call her whatever you want :-)

Wonderful piece, she looks like an "Harvest Princess" to me, from the beginning the background reminded me of a turkey's fanned out tail. Everything comes together for a real November feeling.

See, I knew you would find the perfect thing to do with those "holes" in her head! This turned out so wonderfully, CC.

I think you answered your own question, you used your favorite piece & the rest flowed for you...sometimes that is the best way to be creative.
I agree with ArtandTea she looks like a Native American shaman.
Gorgeous

Oh, What a beautiful piece of art. She is gorgeous. I love the single row of beads across the top of her head. Did you create the goddess out of polymer clay?? I love her. Hugs Judy
