‘Moon Of My Soul ‘by Imani aka EmpressFaith c 1999
This is one of my smaller pieces which I had designed for my CD compilation collection back in1999. I love music and have an extensive collection, in fact I use to be a member of a women’s Sound System. I only came across this a few weeks ago, hidden in a plastic box with a couple of other covers. They all looked a bit dull, so I decided to brighten them up. I used silver and gold Uni Paint Markers as well as Signo Uniball green and pink metallic ink pens. ‘Moon Of My Soul 2’ is the result.
Wow, another birthday, another year for me. And I am feeling really good.
I’ve always wanted to see how some of my pictures would look if they were displayed properly, so this is my birthday present to myself. I used metallic ink pens to create these pictures but I also have a small collection of HB pencil and crayon art.
As my birthday fell on a Tuesday (yesterday) I will keep on celebrating until the weekend as I’m working my way through my Chocolate Brownie Birthday Cake.
I’m so glad that my children had the sense to buy ‘Happy Birthday ‘ candles, last year the heat from all candles was something else, I thought the smoke alarm would go off.
When I am in a good mood, I can work on two or maybe three pieces at once. And I also find that working on bright neon card can be a bit eye watering at times but hey, I love the results. I found ‘Revelation’ to be a really calming picture to make.
This is one of my earliest pieces, so early that I had forgotten about it. I was sorting out some of my old artworks and found this picture in a folder. I remember snatching moments to draw as my children were much younger then. Those were the days when I could be working on two pictures at once, it was like I was running on an engine of creativity.
‘Eye of The Beholder’ is made up of Black, Green Red and Silver ink on neon yellow card.
