Day 3/30 + CONTEST!

DAY 3/30

This was a very sensitive subject for me to share with the public because my emotions are still raw and I still feel vulnerable- yes, even after (nearly) 4 years of my maternal grandmother's passing.

On the brighter side of things, I can say that I've healed and have already taken action in preserving my memory of her!



The theme for WEEK 1 is: {Artist Discovery}

Title: "Viva!"
Media: graphite, acrylic, cut paper collage, watercolor paper, white gel pen, ink pens; digital collage
Size: 8 inches by 10 inches
© 2013 by Martice Smith II.





Lean in a bit closer!
Notice a few elements that reveal personal sentiments of our relationship: 


♫ ♪ Can you see the blue music notes? ♪ ♪♫

** Did you find her age embedded in the illustration?

** Oh, look at the scribbles in the upper right and middle areas!!
It's a hand-written note I wrote to her! (It's illegible and mainly used to give some visual weight to the bottom of the illustration.)
   
** the cardinal bird is a strong, personal symbolic reference of mine. It stands for the abundance of faith and peace; it also represents my prayers being heard from God.


I'm forever grateful to have such a positive and wise woman to help guide me along the right path. Her legacy will not be forgotten.
It was an honor to share my memory of her with you.
