I had no idea what I wanted to do so decided to choose colours and make a start. Once I had laid down background colours corrugated board spoke to me (not really :)). As I was assembling the piece I was listening, and occasionally watching, a documentary on the Thai Cave rescue. I had seen odd snippets on the news but had not fully grasped the intricacies and dangers of the rescue. The documentary gave an in-depth view of the event. While the outcome was unbelievable after such a challenging ordeal, I couldn't help feeling a sense of awe for bravery and dedication of the rescuers and deep sadness for the loss of Former Thai navy seal Saman Gunan.
As my mind followed the rescue so did my art. A few thoughts influenced the piece. Darkness - just how the children endured that, coming into the sunshine for the first time and oxygen - how depleted it was in the cavity where they found the group, and the number of tanks they had to deposit for each rescue.
The sparkle is in the bubbles, added glitter and Wink of Stella on the 'FREE'.
The main items used were Gesso, Tim Holtz inks and phrases.
Thanks for stopping by.
