This last week I started two paintings that I'm pretty excited about. I've combined two ideas that were both on my mind, the moon and tears. I wanted to paint about sugar tears, tears from a heart that overflows. It was pointed out to me that for a long time I've thought that showing emotion was a weakness. I was wrong. Even happy girls cry.
The second painting is about Diana the moon goddess. There is a story about a hunter who was watching her bathe in the woods. She believed that no man should see her naked because her body was sacred so... she didn't like that and she turned him into a stag. I like this story as a metaphor about her being exposed.
