Why She Is Fascinating. Digital Collage. Shelby Pizzarro

Why She Is Fascinating
As women, and especially as women artists, our lives are wrapped in layers. For me, it is layers of paper, fabric, inks, and words that make up my life. And when I am dancing or creating a collage, the layers unwrap slowly to allow me to express a part of who I am.

As a member of the Lunagirl Moonbeam Design Team, I feel as if I have stepped into a Garden of Image Delights. There are so many wonderful pieces of Art in the catalogue that it is sometimes so hard to choose just one.

But this time, it was different. Our challenge is "Fascinating Faces". When Lunagirl sent the selection from which we were to make our choice...it was simple for me. There she was...Jaroslava...Alphonse Mucha's daughter. Her gaze, her pose...it was faultless.

I admit it..I have great affection for the work of Alphonse Mucha. Everything about his style, his colours, his composition in my eyes are flawless. The painting of Jaroslava is no exception. She often sat for her father and is in many of his works. In this painting, the incredibly tied scarf is thought to represent her Slav ancestry...a topic Mucha extensively explored.

Looking at the scarf made me think of my ancestry and my life within the Arts. How often have we wrapped ourselves in scarves made of image and words? Jaroslava's intense gaze calls the viewer to meet her eyes, and go beyond..to see who she is and meet the Muse who inspires her.

And that to me is what makes women fascinating.

The collage is digital using the image from the Lunagirl Moonbeam collection. I am a lover of scarves.Words twist and turn following the folds of the fabric. The background is a piece of scarf material from my collection.

And isn't part of the fascination persevering to see through the layers?

"Fire and Ice", work in Progress by Tatiana Myers.

Last week was busy and I didn't work much on any of my art projects.
However, now I'm back to another silk painting.
I call it :"Fire and Ice", as it is going to be a portrait of white and red rose.
It is still in progress, about half-way done.  I think I'm just going to frame this one.

Stay tuned! 
Next week I'm going to post finished painting.

Early spring


Spring has me in a tizzy as usual.  Ever since I have been a child looking out the window as nature slowly came back to life I have wanted to be a part of it somehow.  This time of year is for me full of vague yet intense yearning.  It is as if my spirit is part of nature in its pulsing growth and is looking for a way to manifest itself in the same way the trees are bursting with life.
Yesterday I began making water colors for the first time in many years hoping to find a way to paint outside that is not quite as messy and complicated as oils. In the week or so up to this time I have been trying to capture something of these feelings in a video.  I wanted to somehow represent the way nature moves from very simple to very complex forms in a very short time.
Here is a first stab at that.  Any feedback is very welcome.  This music does not end where the video does so I may try to finish it.
