Yesterday, was a very artistically productive day. I wanted to paint representations of the four elements of nature: Air, Fire, Earth, and Water. I began with basic acrylic paintings; but soon realized more was needed to convey my messages. So, I opted to use glue, old newspapers, and plaster.
I come from a family of very talented people, both maternal and paternal. We consist of visual artists, musicians, vocalists, dancers, and writers. With each brush stroke I celebrate my mom, Betty J. Robinson-Burton, who is a visual artist and clothes designer/tailor.
We often hear that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. However, even when beauty is beheld it comes with conditions. It’s either thin, muscular, curvy, petite, or tall to fit another person’s liking.
