Gothic fantasy art: Big Girl

"Big Girl" (2010)
21cm x 29.7cm, acrylic

Turns out that using up my creative 'dryspell' for something useful like art research pulls me in so much that I forget about actually creating. Perhaps that is why I've been feeling rather empty lately.

This was a piece that was unfinished until Tuesday morning when it felt just right. I still remember what it was like holding on to balloons full of helium for the first time. The euphoria, as a child, amazed at how something could be so light and easy. Like promises, sweet words, and romance.

Until the helium fades away and the pretty perky balloons roll around on the floor like a disappointment.
