painting commences / by Amanta Scott

Following the workshop activity, I shared some stories of my life, particularly the ones that inspired Parallel Lines and the painting series: Perceptions

After the storytelling session I invited the participants to consider a photo or image of their choosing, one that held some personal significance to them, with the idea of creating a work inspired by that image. They had the option to include or not to include the actual photo in their painting. Either way, they were invited to explore and express the emotions or feelings triggered by that image.

As they got going some beautiful images emerged. It was a delight to watch things unfold.
