150x90 cm, mixed media on canvas, 1997
Wonderful Patrice is our host this weekend, please go to see the other participants at her blog!
While watching the pictures at Patrice blog I remembered this painting from 1997.
I did it at art school for my degree.
During that time I was fascinated (and I´m still) by ancient paintings, cave paintings etc.
Marija Gimbutas and her book "the language of the goddess" was a big inspiration.
The toad is a goddess, her skin is covered with lines coming from the past...
I scratched them in plaster, I wanted it to look very very old, an invitation to touch it and to follow those lines with your fingers.
Quite a big size (for me): 150 x 90 cm.
Unfortunately I only got this fuzzy picture. But I hope you can get an impression!
Have a fine weekend!
There are still 3 available in my shop.
