Two days ago my friend Magaly(Pagan Culture), asked if she could use one of my paintings "Light of my Life" as the header for her FB page. I was totally flattered, and said yes :D Magaly was so excited she posted "MINE! not really..." which made me laugh, so I thought I would make her a painting of her own. It is much smaller than the previous paintings, on 8x5 art board (so I can afford to post it lol).
Magaly likes "dark and sexy"..and dancing :D
For my base layer, I used dictionary pages, containing words such as "dark", "dancing", "light", "sincere" you get the idea :D, and because I didn't have Magaly for her hand prints I used mine..the hand of friendship :D
...and started to build up the layers around 2 figures dancing/embracing
I used red and yellow(plus the blue of my hands) because Magaly is an intensely primal being, so primary colours :D. I believe she would also admit to being a very "fiery" faerie :D so red and yellow also represent the flames of her passionate nature ...
then a layer of black glaze...cos she likes the darkside :D
Looks a bit pink here, but it is red acrylic let down with glazing medium...
and the grey area is iridescent paint that shimmers when you walk by ...just like Magaly :D
I was going to call it "Dancing in the Dark", but felt "Embrace the Moment" suited it better for now :D
Hope you like it Magaly, will post it when I've finished collecting stuff for the Samhain parcel I'm putting together for you :D
Enjoy :D XXX
