I finished these a week(ish) ago, and finally took some photos this afternoon.  They're very personal for me but I think many people might find something in them that resonates on a personal level.  We all have so many stories, don't we?  When I look at them I see someone trapped in circumstances she's unable to control and so she looks for her freedom somewhere else.  Her spirit lives.  She's undefeated.

Closeup of second canvas


All three together


First canvas: acrylics, cardstock, ink, found words, salvaged jewelry.



Second Canvas: same as the first



Third Canvas: same, with metal bird charm



Each canvas is 2.5x3.5 inches.

Thanks for making it through all those images!   Smiley

Beautiful little pieces of art. I love that shadow of a face on the first  and third one.  I also love the use of the birds.  As much as I dislike birds, their symbolism resonates with me.  Thank you for sharing them!

These have incredible balance both spatially and in regards to color. Great job!
