You’d be surprised what I find in my hair. Especially when my ideas start to overflow.
I’ve been going through a bit of artists block lately, it happens, but I think I’m finally over it! After painting the hands, I mixed some henna colored paint and put it into a henna tube. It’s kind of like a pastry bag, and squeezed it onto the hands as if I was actually doing henna.
This painting was inspired by this poem by Eugene Field.
“Wynken, Blynken, and Nod one night
Sailed off in a wooden shoe —
Sailed on a river of crystal light,
Into a sea of dew.
“Where are you going, and what do you wish?”
The old moon asked the three.
“We have come to fish for the herring fish
That live in this beautiful sea.”
