A little warning that this is going to be a long post. I hope you have all enjoyed your weekend and managed to stay dry.
My canvas today is inspired by the very talented artist and sculpture Henry Moore. When my parents got married their best man bought them a sketch of the painting below. This was in every home we lived in and I love it! It is one of the reasons I was so interested in art but I never did get pass O Level. This could be why I so love my crafting today! I craft to please myself and hopefully inspire my fellow crafters. My husband and I visited the Henry Moore institute in Leeds a couple of years ago. It was amazing, I do love his work. Below is the photograph of the painting by Henry Moore.
You can read a little bit more about this amazing sculptor here if you wish.
Here is one of his quotes:
"The artist works with a concentration of his whole personality, and the conscious part of it resolves conflicts, organized memories, and prevents him from trying to walk in two directions at the same time."
I used to sit and loose myself in this picture for hours. I still love it today!
