“Air”- Oil pastels, gouache, on vintage book page 4×6
I know I’ve already done this concept – but I wasn’t totally happy with the first series so I did them over. Are re-do’s okay? I think they are. The other thing that happened (unexpectedly) was that I sold the first set of this series and I had planned on giving it as a Christmas gift. Selling art is always a good thing, right? Don’t know if I will gift this set or not. Doing them over was an interesting process – and I learned something in the process – I wasn’t bored with doing them over at all. Its odd how the “air” and “water” look very similar to the first set. But “Fire” and “Earth” look very different.

This one looks a little wonky – but I like it better than the first one, I like the long braids. Looks very much like a goddess of the earth to me.
