Sometimes it seems like life is coming at you from all directions and your like that little hamster on the metal wheel, running and running but getting no where! But it's not the destination really, it's the journey that we should enjoy. This painting was inspired by my feelings on a poem that I found in an old book: Life Is What We Make It.
The background has an add from 1911 from Macys, there is sheet music in the bottom left from around the same time. And her wings and text are from the vintage book that had the poem in it that inspired the painting.
I'm like most artists, I've been creating something for as long as I can remember. I have explored many types of media and love experimenting with new things. Mixed media seems to be where my heart belongs. I can combine my love of painting, sculpting, adding found object all into one. The Steampunk Soul series evolved after I took a job with a corporation--the Soul Sucker. I hope you enjoy my artwork! xo Michele
