I never went to art school and I do not regret the fact that I became a biologist, but I always feel that I am lagging so much in art because of a lack of formal education. Yes, you can be self taught but the aid of a knowledgeable professor would be greatly appreciated and now I do not have the time to dedicate 12 hrs+ a day to the study of art. However I do want to keep improving and I will keep studying, so to challenge myself and to avoid falling in the trap of comfort I decided to go through a list of things to do…

With this in mind I decided to keep my submission for the Enchanted Vissions Project: Circe, very muted and limited. I chose an earthy palette because I wanted to keep an “ancient” look, and I used a roman inspired frame. Also, I wanted to practice fur, which didn’t come out as good as I wanted, but it is a good first attempt.
It was challenging, I hated it for most of the process but towards the end it started to come together. I do like the final look, with the frame in place and the wrinkled texture.
