It took me a long time to decide what to do for “Amanda Day”, trying to figure out how to represent the earth. I came accross a quote yesterday that I really liked and that gave me some inspiration. “Forget not that the earth delights in feeling your bare feet, and the wind longs to blow your hair”- I can’t remember the last time I went barefoot in the grass. I thought about how much fun it was to be a kid, picking dandelions and buttercups, lying in the grass looking up at the sky, and not having a care in the world. It made me think about the earth in simpler terms. I began by writing the quote around the outside of the tile, then added things to represent water, land and sky. It took me a while because the colors appeared very light at first, so I added deeper color, then I was sorry I did that (sometimes you need to leave well enough alone). I played around a little more and I guess I’m happy with it now. Sorry, it’s a little blurry.
