I have been thinking about this for some time and have been working on the hand all week…. My intention was to have colored it but I did in charcoal and it would have smeared. I had to spray it with the Krylon Sealer to
prevent it from smearing even more. On second thought I think I like it just the way it is.
I tried to find a poem I read a long time ago about a hand that changed the way I thought about my hands at the time.. but I just can’t find it… I did find this quote
‘Sometimes reaching out and taking someone’s hand is the beginning if a journey.
At other times it is allowing another to take yours.’
I love the picture of the generational hands, I am sure you have all seen…
I do have to smile.. My hand looks so big on the page and I always thought I had small hands… all perspective I guess.
A very plain entry but I just wanted make the hand very visual…. These hands have taken me through many journeys
There was another Quote I found that I will share.
‘Behold the hands, how they promise, conjure, appeal, menace, pray, supplicate, refuse, beckon, interrogate, abuse, confess, cringe, instruct, command, mock, and what not besides, with a variation and multiplication of variation which makes the tongue jealous.’ Michel de Montaigne
That was much to long to add to the art piece, in my opinion but food for thought..
