Flower Boot Angel

The apartment I lived in at the time had a fireplace in each bedroom. During one of my rare cleaning fits, I noticed a bit of dust on the stone in front of the actual fireplace.

Shapes in the dust. What do you see?

Out of the many shapes and ideas that were swirling around in there, this is the one that stood out. I took a photo of the dust with my smartphone, loaded it into Corel Painter, and fleshed out the image I saw.

The vision presents itself

The result is a piece I enjoyed putting together. It’s nice when the inspiration just shows up, faster than me having to chase it down in my head. Dr. Rorschach might have been proud of me!

Strengthening the outline so the painting can begin.
