Last night I sketched a picture for Loki, but was unable to continue working on it after the pencil-work was done
A clearer image is located here: Loki Artwork
I want to use acrylic paints to color in the details, and then seal the finished artwork with a clear varnish spray. I have been very self-conscious about my artwork in the past, and haven’t painted since I left the domestic abuse I was trapped in when I had my eldest daughter.
In high school I ached to be able to express myself through painting or sculpting, but my home life was so chaotic and painful that anything I created was destroyed to punish and hurt me. Taking the time to make something like this for Loki is a huge leap of faith for me, and exposes a deep-seated fear that is still lodged within my spirit.
But here it is, as my promise encourages me, I won’t censor myself or hide away anymore, even if I would prefer to. Independence Day takes on a whole new meaning for me this time.
