This is my first entry for Illustration Friday but I was very inspired by the word/theme this week and thought I would give it a go.
Last night my husband brought home a mix CD a friend had given to him. It turns out it was the mostly the new Brandi Carlile CD I had been hearing others talk about. After listening to the CD and loving every single song I wonder how could I have gone for so long without being exposed to her amazing sound? Goodness, she has stolen my heart away and inspired me. All in one day. What more can a girl ask for!
(update: I am thinking about the comment "anonymous" left and want to mention that I do plan to actually buy her new CD. )
This piece was inspired by song number 7. Josephine. These lines grabbed me the moment I heard them---"I am missing someone but I don't know who, Now I'm standing alone and I'm trying to remember..."
I used acrylics on hotpress watercolor paper. On my art table was another inspiration. A tin type of a young girl.
