P1970345 JAMA COAQUE MAN RAQUEL

“It takes a very long time to become young.”
― Pablo Picasso

This Timeout for Art project was simple and easy! The design, inspired by a pre-Columbian artifact, was painted on a pillow to bridge the painting on the wall (below) with the fabrics on the sofa and chair.

Inspired by an artifact that was used to make repeat designs, this painting now lives in a guest house.  The pillow on the chair all but screamed, ‘Please paint me!’

Sellos were most likely used for rolling designs on textiles and/or skin.

Using acrylic paints, I blocked in the main areas of color, let them dry, then added subtle shadows to make it more three dimentional.  The darkest colors were added last.
