Hand Painted Ceramic Ornament #3 - Multicolor Abstract, White Round Ornament
For my final project of the year, I decided to look back at 2022 and create ornaments inspired by sketchbook pages and projects from the last 11 months! Each one is hand painted and has a story and meaning behind it.
This multicolor abstract ornament is a nod to my 2022 100 Day Project where I added 1 mark a day onto a canvas and experimented with color!
Working in color was something that was a little scary and uncomfortable for me because it's not something I usually use a lot of--which was exactly why I needed to take a big leap out of my comfort zone and go all in!
Creating the 100 day piece was a beautiful experience in creative exploration, surrendering and allowing things to be, letting things develop at a slower pace, facing fears and insecurities, and immersing myself in the world of color. I really wanted to make an ornament that represented all those things as well.
I used many different tools and methods for the original painting and tried to replicate as many as I could on this ornament including printing with a leaf, using a rubber band, dragging string, and more!
I hope this ornament can gently encourage and inspire you to color outside the lines and step outside your comfort zone.
