this is a 12x12 mixed media piece featuring a line from anne sexton's poetry. the background is layers of paper (scrapbook, old book pages etc), acrylic paint, rubber stamps, stencils, spray paint. i have also used gel pens, paint pens, heat embossing, and charcoal to alter the image and make it my own. it reads:

a woman like that is not afraid* to die, i have been her kind.

i am big on texture, both visual and tactile, and this has both.

feedback welcome, thanks for looking!

*the original poem by sexton used "ashamed" instead of "afraid", but essentially the same/similar meaning.

So gorgeous, I love all the colour, the drips and of course the verse!  What you did on the edges of the image is so freaking cool...   Sexton's poetry really melds with your work Smiley
