Leaving Home

I made this canvas for my lovely daughter Hannah when she moved out of home into her first flat and it hangs in pride of place in her living room - much to my delight. I used acrylic paints for the background and applied them with an old credit card. I loved the randomness of this approach - not really knowing what will emerege and not stopping til I'm happy with what does! I love the lady with wings stamped image - she gets overused if I'm honest. The other elements were bits and pieces I'd got hanging around in my collection of images and the locket and cross were Hannah's when she was small. The chains had broken but I couldn't bear to get rid of these items and so I felt it fitting they should go with her when she spread her tiny wings and flew away ......!
